St Paul’s- Great Yarmouth

St Paul, Great Yarmouth
With the rise to prominence of Great Yarmouth as a seaside town in the second half of the 19th Century, a large new suburb grew up to the north on what had been until then empty denes. Inevitably, it was called Newtown, and existed to serve the holiday industry rather than the port and the fishing fleet, whose workers lived mostly to the south of the town centre and across the river in Southtown and Cobholm. Despite what are largely rows of terraced houses, this fact gives Newtown a certain genteel air, and there is a sense of its own identity which is largely a result of its separation from the town centre by the vast cemetery. Three long straight roads connect Newtown with the rest of Yarmouth, one of which takes the main London road through to Caister to the north. Just off of this sits St Paul.
