Trowse (Trowse with Newton)lies about 1 1⁄2 miles south-east of Norwich city centre on the banks of the River Yare.
Trowse is a model village.
Trowse was created by the Colman family during the 1800s for workers at Colman's mustard factory. The family still owns much of the surrounding land. It is also home to another great, old-established Norfolk family business, May Gurney,a major civil engineering and construction company.

The parish is in the deanery of Brooke and the archdeaconry of Norfolk.

The parish church is a small flint building, in the Perpendicular style, comprising a chancel, nave, and square tower with a bell and a clock; the chancel was restored in 1879. The church is dedicated to St Andrew.


Flint is a form of silica or Silicon Dioxide (SiO2). It is found extensively in chalky areas around the country, where it is often used as a building material, due to its hardness. Many of Britain's beaches, especially on the south coast, are composed of flint.
