Norfolk House

Norfolk House was completed in 1960 and was an early feature of the Inner Ring Road development on Smallbrook Ringway.  It had been built by the Norwich Union Insurance Societies, hence its name.  It remained in place in 2014 with the exterior looking much as it did when it first opened.  The Norfolk House website showed the interior had moved on though!
