Norway Street, writes Ms Irvine-Smith, has no connection to the country; it is instead a mistake by Wellington City Council. It was originally named ‘Norna Street’ by the former estate owner, Henry Tait, who also named these steps for the island of Thule in the Shetlands. Entrance Street was the entry to Taitville.

I can’t make out this unofficial inscription on a step along the way.

On my visit, someone had thoughtfully left a seat as, presumably, a just reward for the log climb.
