Two villages - one neighbourhood

Bookmark and Share

The villages of Drayton, Taverham and the residential area of Thorpe Marriott lie between the Wensum to the east and the Reepham Road to the west.

These each have their own history and distinctive communities - yet form one large neighbourhood.

Roads serving the three villages meet in the centre of Drayton, via Costessey Lane, Hall Road, Hellesdon Low Road, Fakenham Road, School Lane and Taverham Lane.

It brings some peak-daytime traffic congestion, hopefully relieved when the  Northern Distributor Road (NDR) is completed. On the other hand Thorpe Marriott as part of Drayton and Taverham shares a quite outstanding 'commonwealth' of amenities in pleasing surroundings. Together they host a wide array of activity groups serving all ages.

Our 'two village neighbourhood' embraces the life and gifts of people from different parts of the UK and world. We all benefit from the proximity of Norwich, countryside and coast. We share rich opportunities to build friendships, to work together in what matters and valuing what is good.
