14 KING STREET
In 2020, Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust completed the purchase of No. 14 King Street, a prominent building in the town centre which had been vacant since 2018. Built in the 1830s, No. 14 King Street was originally occupied by chemists, but later became home to a series of successful photographic businesses, which traded from a Victorian daylight studio at the top of the building. The ground floor later became home to the much-loved clothier and hatter ‘Tom Green’s Corner’.
Working with the Borough Council and funding partners, the Trust plans to undertake a full repair for reuse as residential accommodation and a Heritage Centre, showcasing Great Yarmouth’s rich history and culture. Located at a junction between the two principal roads in the town, the Centre will serve to connect the historic town centre to the seafront, encouraging locals and tourists to explore the town’s history and re-imagine the past through interactive technology.
