Mile Cross #1

Suckling Avenue.

The once-grand entrance to the estate from the Northern fringes.

Space wasn't at such a premium for new housing developments during the inter-war years and it shows here. The avenue was created this way on purpose and it was purely showing off on the behalf of the Corporation's planners.

 

Named after Robert Suckling, who was twice Mayor of Norwich in the late 1500's.

 

Seen here back in the 1920's with it's 4 rows of freshly-planted trees.
