These maps show how in some parts of Norfolk the most and least deprived neighbourhoods are separated by a single road.
This newspaper reported last week, as part of our Fighting for Their Futures campaign, that Norfolk had become more deprived between 2010 and 2015, according to government data.
The government measures deprivation in all neighbourhoods in England, using data about income, education, health, crime and housing to give on overall deprivation ranking.
The darker the colour on the map, the more deprived the area is, according to the government data. Explore the map below to see how your neighbourhood compares.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has been publishing the data since the 1970s. These maps are based on data collected in 2013.
•Dereham Road, Norwich
The difference in deprivation is at its starkest along Dereham Road in Norwich. The Larkman estate area, which includes Motum Road and Beecheno Road is in the 10pc most deprived neighbourhoods in the country.
Further north-west along Dereham Road, the part of Costessey around Norwich Road, is in the 20pc least deprived neighbourhoods.
•Thorpe St Andrew
Where Thorpe St Andrew meets Norwich, in one section of Harvey Lane, is another area with a stark difference. The neigbourhood around Piling Park Road in Norwich’s Crome ward is among the 10pc most deprived parts of the country.
But on the east side of Harvey Lane, in the Gordon Avenue area, residents find themselves in one of the least 10pc deprived areas of England.
It is a similar story on nearby Salhouse Road, leading north-east out of Norwich. The southern side of the road, around Munnings Road and Barclay Road is home to a neighbourhood in the 10pc most deprived part of England.
But walk across to the northern side of Salhouse Road, around Falcon Road East, and you will be in one of the 20pc least deprived parts of the country.
North of King’s Lynn there is also a sudden change in deprivation. The North Lynn area around Edward Benefer Way is one of the 20pc most deprived neighbourhoods.
But step north of Edward Benefer Way into North Wootton and you will find yourself in one of the least deprived areas.
The Great Yarmouth area is home to some of the most deprived parts of England, but it is not the same across the board. In two areas - where Southtown meets Great Yarmouth and near Bradwell and Brasenose Avenue - there are huge differences in deprivation.
The Brasenose Avenue area is again in the most 10pc deprived neighbourhoods in the country - but to the east, a neighbourhood in Bradwell, is in the least 20pc deprived.
