Doing research, I was excited to learn that a key location in Norwich’s Suffrage movement was Brigg Street where The National Union of Women’s Suffrage opened a shop at no 7 and sold merch to raise money and spread the word. When I did my recce for our plaque, I found a plaque already there, to Reverend D'Oyley, who in old age rode 12,000 miles on horseback collecting subscriptions for the widening of the street.

I thought, if someone gets a plaque for, the no doubt worthy, cause of street-widening, then the women who ran and supported a shop to widen the vote to include women also deserved a plaque.
