Our supported home is situated in the historic Norwich Cathedral Close. It was built in 1862 for Canon James Heaviside and became the Archdeaconry after his death.

The house is a Grade II listed Gothic building, described by Sir John Betjeman as, 'the best house in Norwich'.

There are many unique architectural features, which make for a particularly interesting environment for our residents. Being too large to remain a clergy house, it was converted for use by the newly formed Abbeyfield Norwich Society in 1977 with the help of the late Very Reverend Alan Webster who was the Dean of Norwich Cathedral at the time.

Although set in the heart of the city of Norwich, the Cathedral Close has very much a village feel. The location offers the best of both worlds: quiet seclusion with city amenities close at hand.

The house has an allotment which supplies home grown produce for the residents meals. An adjacent cutting garden supplies seasonal flowers for the house. The society also maintains a wildlife-friendly garden with an unusual range of plants and shrubs.
