Newsletters.
Twice-yearly newsletters are sent to members with information about forthcoming summer events and winter talks, reports of talks and events, lists of buildings recorded as well as letters and information about other groups. Newsletters are available to non-members via the website one year later. The newsletters have colour front and back covers but online versions include colour versions of all photographs.

Journal No 6: Little Walsingham: A study of historic buildings in a medieval pilgrimage centre, 2015
This volume is the result of several years of surveys and analysis of the buildings in Little Walsingham and their documentary history. This work is placed in the context of the landscape archaeology of the town, medieval pilgrimage and the roles of the Priory and Friary in Walsingham. The buildings of the town and their remaining medieval elements are described as well as their specific construction and adaptations in the centuries prior to and after the Dissolution of the Priory and Friary in the sixteenth century. A fully illustrated gazetteer of the details of 70 buildings. A variety of dating techniques were employed: the findings and problems with dating are discussed. NHBG is grateful to grants for dendrochronology from the Vernacular Architecture Group and towards publication from The Norfolk and Norwich Archaeological Society. Colour cover with 750 b&w images.
