Private gated road to Twins Farm
Private gated road to Twins Farm
This used to be the Old Stoke Road, now bisected by the A47 (southern bypass) road.

During WW2, the site was the Anti-Aircraft Ordnance Depot for Norwich and was used for the storage and maintenance of anti-aircraft guns for the Norwich Gun Defended Area. The site had a main technical area, comprising garages and workshops, currently occupied by Syfer Technology. To the north (now a car park) lay an accommodation site, of which no obvious trace survives today, and a small sports field was located to the south-west. Some of the main technical structures and buildings, including a bungalow, presumably the guard house > LinkExternal link and the 6-bay workshop > LinkExternal link which appears to be the principal factory building, have survived.
