Angel Yard is in Norwich, a medieval city in the East of England, UK. Norwich is 90 minutes away from London by train and 30 minutes’ drive from the nearest beach.
Our half-acre site (approx. 0.2 hectares) is on Sussex Street, a Georgian and Victorian residential area, just a short walk from the city centre. It used to be home to Sussex House but, following bomb damage, it became a mason’s yard and then an industrial unit.
The site is a short walk from the River Wensum and Marriott’s Way, an off-road cycle and foot path. It’s close to Magdalen Street, a vibrant area with a rich mix of independent shops and cafes. There’s a zero-waste store, vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurants, record and vintage shops, charity shops and supermarkets.
Our first members came together in 2015 when we bought our site, complete with planning permission. After a few technical hitches, we’ve regrouped with a fresh sense of purpose and our membership has started to grow.
Working with TOWN, developers of the award-winning Marmalade Lane cohousing community in Cambridge, we appointed Archio as our project architects in 2020.
We’re now in the process of creating new site plans, which we hope to submit in early 2021.
