From the introduction: This booklet focuses upon one particular part of the city, covering aspects of the physical development of the north-eastern suburbs. The volume aims to identify the social and cultural changes which have prompted the need for the construction work which has taken place in the district over time.
Broadly speaking, the area covered by the volume, essentially the north-eastern section of the city, is bounded on the west by Nettleham Road. Its northernmost extent is the A46 ring road, and the neighbourhood's eastern border is enshrined by the likely route of the eastern bypass. The southern boundary of the district is the line of Lindum Terrace. There is a certain amount of permeability to these boundaries, however, as indicated by occasional reference to Eastgate west of its junction with Porrergate and Northgare.
