A beautiful English sunny day in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. In the far distance is Norwich Prison, which houses a cafe (Britannia Cafe) that is run by the inmates and is very good! The photograph was initially unplanned I was actually out and about to capture a different location, however, I was passing and couldn’t resist the urge. The photo was captured at around 08:00 am, there was hardly anyone around, other than the odd dog walker and was absolutely bliss.

The prison cafe – Based at the former Britannia Barracks with spectacular views over Norwich and is a shabby chic cafe offering freshly cooked British cuisine. Open 7 days a week, the cafe is staffed by category D low risk prisoners, that have  volunteered to learn new skills, improve their lives and make a fresh start. All tips and profits generated from the cafe go to rehabilitating prisoners and charitable causes.

Since the launch in January 2014, Cafe Britannia has donated over £5,000 to Victim Support.
