The New Town
From the late nineteenth century Great Yarmouth expanded northwards across the North Denes and market gardens gave way to late-Victorian terraced housing. In the twentieth century a new type of development, the larger individually designed houses in the Avenues, extended the housing further northwards. This was followed by the first council house development in the town. Corner shops, schools, pubs and places of worship were built to serve this new community which was to become known as Newtown.
