Street Stories: Remembering Developers
Norris Way, Elmwood Grove, Ashwood Grove and Rosewood Grove

Norris Way was named in 2004 to commemorate the family of developer George Norris. His grandfather Frederick Norris was born in Kent, England, and came to Masterton about 1910. A businessman, he was also involved in many community organisations. The development is called Elmsted Estate in honour of Frederick’s home village, and its streets are named for English timbers.
