Take a trip down memory lane with our fabulous photographic celebration of East Anglian life through the decade. Today we take a nostalgic look back at Diss, a beautiful market town thats famous for its magnificent 6 acre mere.
For hundreds of years, rumours were rife that Diss's beautiful Mere was formed in the crater of an extinct volcano, but no matter what you believe about its creation, no-one can doubt its place in the town's history.
Covering six acres, with lovely walkways and an abundance of wildlife, this watery idyll has long been the focus of community life - in the 19th century locals would take to the frozen lake for a game of cricket and a spot of ice-skating, something repeated in recent decades.
