    Pull's Ferry is a medieval waterway on the river Wensum south of Broadgate, Norwich. It was built by monks to link a canal to the Wensum to ferry stone from France to build Norwich Cathedral. The watergate is 15th century and built of brick and flint. The adjoining Ferry House dates from 1647. The building became known as Pull's Ferry after John Pull who ran a ferry across the Wensum at this point from 1796 to 1841.

     

    Niemann exhibited `The Fish Market, Norwich' at the Royal Academy in 1852.
