Great Yarmouth Rows

A year or so ago I was involved in a project organised by the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust that was researching theRows. Some of the results of which can be found here The Rows or on their facebook page The Rows of Great Yarmouth. During that time I pieced together a database listing the Rows and the various names I had found for each one. I thought it may be useful to reproduce that list here.

A few caveats.

  1. I do not claim this list is complete. You may well be aware of other names for these rows
  2. It’s a simple list and in most cases there are no dates against the names. It’s never that simple anyway as Rows were called different things by different people at the same time
  3. They have been shortened in that I don’t append the word ‘Row’ to them. Most did have that appendage – though not all
  4. The sources are varied but Palmer’s Perlustrations, the Yarmouth Independent 1916 list, and Harry B. Johnson’s 1926 list are all key. As for images, the collection at Picture Norfolk is one of the best publicly available collections of Row photographs and I am grateful for them making it available
