Running through a triangular district of Norwich’s Victorian terraced housing is Unthank Road, which took its name from the family who owned a large estate there in the nineteenth century. When I moved to Norwich I was intrigued by the urban myth that a nearby stretch of high wall was the last remnant of the Unthank estate. In researching this story (and finding an unexpected answer) I uncovered more about the history of the Golden Triangle. This book describes how the Triangle developed and how many of the street names originated. Newly released photographs of the Unthanks bring to life the founding fathers of this neighbourhood.
