Swan on the River Yare
View towards a modern house (1970s) situated beside the river bank on the west side of Bracondale. It has been constructed of concrete blockwork and is called Heron Island. This house was designed in a contemporary style by local architect Malcolm Rose and was, for a time, his home. For another view of this property see > LinkExternal link.
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.
