1. : General

A radius of  four miles  from  Norwich Castle
has been chosen to represent  Greater Norwich.

This broad, but simplistic, decision has had the following
impacts : both negative and - surprisingly - positive.

2. : Old Costessey

This village has received special treatment.
Although nearly all of it falls  within  the radius,  two 
slightly more  distant  pubs are included - for completeness.

3. : Exclusions

  • South-West :  Bawburgh, Little Melton
        &  Hethersett  all  excluded;
        along with  EastonMarlingford.
  • West :  Royal Nfk. Showground &
        Nfk. Retail Park are both  excluded.
  • North-West :  none  of  Taverham  or
        Thorpe Marriot  is included

4. : Inclusions

The generous 4-mile radius, however, includes
many far-flung suburbs; some quite recently built,
but with a total lack* of public house provision.
  • West :  Bowthorpe is included (4 pubs).

  • North-West :  a (modern) bit of  Drayton*

  • North :  a tiny part of modern  Spixworth*

  • East :  Thorpe End*Dussindale* [1]

  • South-East :   Kirby Bedon (one  pub)
          &  Arminghall.
  • South :  Caistor St. Edmund,  Dunston
          (one  hotel) and  Keswick.
[1] But there are  pubs/hotels  in the
     "business parks" -
     (St. Andrew's  &  Broadland).

5. : The Divisions

The circular area chosen to represent  Greater Norwich
has been subdivided into 6 sub-areas. These are
termed  'divisions'  and are  listed in detail  elsewhere.
