Chapel Field North building to become Norwich health clinic

Plans submitted by Bidwells on behalf of a client will see St Mary’s Croft, in Chapel Field North, turned into a musculoskeletal healthcare clinic.

The Grade II listed site was well known to generations of drivers who looked at it while stuck in traffic jams.

It has been used as office space since it was converted from a dental clinic in 2006.

Details of the internal refurbishments of the building are yet to be released, but it is understood the new plans will not change any of the external features of the site.

The building, which was built in 1881, stands out because of its architecture, across three storeys and with two second floor verandas. 

It was built by a man of the sea, Captain Crowe, incorporating the walls of an earlier building.

Little is known about the house except it was once lived in by a wealthy lady of local high society, Mary Radford Pym.

She married George Radford Pym, a solicitor from Derbyshire and was very philanthropic as well as mixing with the rich and famous of her time.

The days of drivers staring at it mostly came to an end in 2014 when cars were restricted from using the road. Norwich City Council will now consider the plans.
