Changing Face of Norwich
- Castle Meadow

We have no photographs of Castle Meadow before the trams when it was known as the Castle Ditches as it did follow the route of the old defensive castle ditch. With the coming of the railways to Thorpe station it became an alternative route for access into the City centre but only via a maze of narrow back streets. All that changed with the cut through to the new Orford Place and the widening of Red Lion street.
