Diss is a town in Norfolk close to the border with the neighbouring East Anglian county of Suffolk. The town lies in the valley of the River Waveney, around a mere that covers 6 acres. The mere is up to 18 feet (5.5 m) deep, although there is another 51 feet of mud, making it one of the deepest natural inland lakes in England. The town takes its name from dic an Anglo-Saxon word meaning either ditch or embankment. Diss has a large number of historic buildings, including the early 14th century parish church and it is also home to a museum. Diss railway station lies on the Great Eastern Main Line route from London to Norwich. This fascinating visual journey through time uses old and new images to illustrate the changes that have taken place in this area, in a book that will surprise and delight residents and visitors alike.
