Matthew Williams

Author Matthew Williams

Matthew Williams has spent most of his life based in the Norwich area. Through many years working as an engineering geologist and latterly as a cycle instructor, he has gained a detailed understanding of the physical and historical make-up of the city and its surroundings.

He enjoys searching out the continuity from the past into the present, and asking how these linkages can inform our planning for the future.

He is acutely aware of a wide gulf between fanciful accounts of Norwich ground conditions often found in the press and on social media and the detailed knowledge traditionally kept under wraps by the engineering professionals. His mission is to help bring into the public domain a more informed view of subterranean Norwich and its implications for us all.
