HEATHFIELD
NORWICH

62 Cannell Green
Norwich
NR3 1TT

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

If you are walking to Heathfield from the station, or from Prince of Wales Road or Bishopgate and then along the river, please see the By train section below.

Heathfield is at the junction of Cannell Green and Heathgate, near Gurney Road.

A very pleasant route is to go through the car park by the Adam and Eve pub (NR3 1RZ) and then cross the river using the curved Jarrold pedestrian bridge. Turn right onto the riverside footpath (go left down some steps and then left again under the bridge).

** The path takes you past some office buildings and through a car park. Follow it, turning left around the health club, then cross the main road at the lights. The path crosses the green. Turn right onto Cannell Green, and Heathfield is about 50m away, the last building on the left. The main entrance is the white door with a large ’62’ by it, beyond the long bike shed in the car park.

If you’re coming from the University of the Arts, follow the riverside path. Go past the the Ribs of Beef, cross both Fye Bridge Street and Whitefriars, and go past St James’s Mill (which includes the John Jarrold Printing Museum). Follow the instructions above from ** once you reach the curved Jarrold footbridge.

Norwich railway station has regular services to and from London, taking about 2 hours. It takes 15 minutes to walk to Heathfield from the station along Riverside/Bishop Bridge Road (A147). If you have luggage, you may prefer to take a bus (no 23 or 24) just one stop along Riverside.

At the Kett’s Hill roundabout, follow the pavement left along Barrack Street to the pedestrian crossing. A footpath crosses the grassy area to Cannell Green. Turn right and Heathfield is the last building on your left.

The main entrance is the white door with a large ’62’ by it beyond the long bike shed.

There are regular services from Victoria Coach Station, and the journey takes a little over 3 hours. Exit Norwich Bus Station (see map B) leaving the ticket office to your left, and turn left into Surrey Street. Then turn right into St Stephens Street, and go straight on at the crossroads. Take either a 25 or a 26 bus from the bus stop outside Debenhams department store. The bus will take you to the railway station – follow the By train directions from there.

There is a taxi rank at Norwich station, where you can take a taxi without booking. In all other cases, taxis in Norwich must be booked by phone. They generally come very promptly.

The taxi driver should bring you to the main entrance, the white door with a large ’62’ by it beyond the long bike shed.

BY CAR

The postcode for Heathfield is NR3 1TT. Please be aware that satnav directions tend to default to half-way along Cannell Green, but Heathfield is at the top end of the road.

There is some parking available. You are very welcome to park here on moving in day. If people come to see you at Heathfield they are also welcome to use the car park during their visit.
