Converted industrial buildings in Paper Mill Yard
These buildings once formed part of the Carrow Works owned by the Colman family of mustard fame and the road into the site is actually part of the old Carrow Road which was moved when the new Carrow Bridge was opened in 1923 a short distance further to the west. Jeremiah Colman had started his mustard and flour business in 1814 at Stoke Holy Cross. It was, however, his great-nephew Jeremiah James Colman who in 1850 bought land from Norfolk Railway at Carrow, and in 1858 brought the company to Carrow and established the Carrow Works which by 1869 had 1100 employees. Colman’s won a special place in the heart of workers in the city, because the company looked after its employees, who enjoyed better conditions than in many other city factories. Many of the old Carrow Works buildings have since been converted into housing. See also > Link.
