It's been the home of Norwich City for more than 80 years but now supporters have been given an opportunity to see the Canaries' Carrow Stadium from new perspectives.

City have posted a video online which shows footage recently captured by a drone camera, showing the 27,200-seater stadium from several aerial angles.

The Canaries moved to their current site in August 1935 after the club's first promotion to the Second Division necessitated a move away from The Nest, in Rosary Road.

The original stadium at Carrow Road was built in just 82 days and Norwich played their first match there against West Ham on August 31, 1935, winning 4-3.

Various modernisation work was carried out through the years, with the old River End terrace replaced by the current two-tier stand in 1979.

The old Main Stand was partially destroyed in 1984 and eventually fully rebuilt into the current City Stand in 1987, with the Barclay Stand terrace also replaced by a two-tier stand in 1993.

The last side of the stadium to be redeveloped was the South Stand, at a cost of around £8million, which opened in February 2004 – also marked by a game against West Ham, which finished in a 1-1 draw.
