Trowse Bridge - the south span
Trowse Bridge - the south span
The present bridge over the River Yare was constructed of brick with stone facing in 1863 by J Stanley and RM Simpson. The bridge was widened in 1886 but part of the south span still incorporates ribs which belonged to the earlier bridge which may indicate that parts of the original bridge may still form part of the structure.
Trowse Millgate
The settlement of Trowse Millgate originated at the bridging point over the River Yare, the ideal location for a mill. The character of the area underwent significant changes in the 19th century when the railway and the sewage works were built. With the onset of post war decline, the character changed again but by the late 20th century this decline was beginning to be reversed with the construction of new housing and the restoration of historic buildings.

Trowse Millgate was first designated a conservation area on 2 January 1979 and extended a couple of years later to include the former railway station and the former Pineapple public house to the north of the railway line. The area lies within the floodplain of the River Yare one mile to the south east of Norwich city centre and covers an area of 3.9 hectares.
