History

The Essex branch started life in the 70’s when Essex motorcyclists were meeting up at the Norton Pub in the village of Cold Norton in Essex. Obviously because of the name of the pub and village, Norton riders were attracted to attend as well all the great bikes around at the time. I myself as a teenager remember turning up on my BSA 650, later when I bought a Norton Commando in 1981 couldn’t wait to go to the Norton to show it off.

In October/November of 1977 the official Essex branch of the Norton Owners Club was formed.

If you have any information or photographs which will help with documenting the NOC Essex branch history please contact me, Alan Throssell the Essex branch secretary. secretary@essex.nortonownersclub.org (alternative contact details are in Roadholder).
