    HISTORY
    John Harvey,banker and Mayor of Norwich in 1792, built Thorpe Lodge. To extend his estate westwards he moved the road which was subsequently named Harvey Lane. This extension crossed over the City boundary, which to this day continues to run through the property. The crinkle crankle boundary wall is his creation, as also is the gazebo on the Yarmouth Road boundary, in which he installed a camera obscura

    although the tunnel doesent go to the gazebo as most people think it runs very close to it the exit is very close to the river and as john harvey had regular river frolics this was a very good safe and non horse poo way of getting past the road and to the river
