Part of my Streets of Norwich project….
This is quite an easy street in terms of the history of the buildings on it, as they were all built over the last couple of years.
It’s located off of Rosary Road, which is a much older street, with The Nest being located around where it says ‘Lime Kilns’ on the above map from 1830.
By 1885, the current location of The Nest is pretty much where the buildings were located under the Brick Works site.
The street takes its name from The Nest, which was Norwich City’s football ground between 1908 and 1935. Although the street isn’t on the site of the former ground, it is relatively near.
