Fiveways and Roundabout

This junction is dealt with here although half of the roundabout is in Framingham Earl. The Railway Tavern and the old Poringland School are in Framingham Earl.

1920 and this view of "The Fiveways" shows Stoke Road on the left of the picture. The horse and cart are travelling down Norwich Road heading for the market in Norwich. The garage and cycle shop was owned by Mr.Davies. (Pic.John Mills).

The cycle shop became the first Fire Station (AFS) during the WW2 when owned by Freddie Mann. The second station was opposite in Stoke Road.

This aerial shot was taken in 1940 by the M.O.D. (Pic.John Hindle).

This picture of the same junction was taken in June 1993. (Pic. copyright Mike Page ).
