Up Your Street – with Nick Taylor of Hadley Taylor
The stories behind some of
the city’s Golden Triangle street names
Bathurst Road – located off the top of Unthank Road between Grosvenor and Clarendon Roads. It was named after Henry Bathurst who was the Bishop of Norwich in 1805 and presided over the Diocese for more than 30 years. “By his frankness and purity of heart, gentleness of manner and pleasantness of conversation attached to himself the goodwill of all”. So reads the inscription on the marble statue of him, in full ecclesiastical costume, in Norwich Cathedral. He died in 1837.
