Record Details

NHER Number:17238
Type of record:Building
Name:Hall Farm, formerly West Dairy Farm, formerly Newton Hall, and barn

Summary

The farmhouse was built as a later medieval crownpost hall. It was floored and extended in the 17th century and heightened in the 18th or 19th century. The hall was presumably connected with the adjacent moated site NHER 25678, and the barn. The house was shown as a gentleman's seat on Faden's map of Norfolk published in 1797. The barn is a 15th century timber framed building on a brick plinth with a double queen post roof. Medieval barns of such good quality are rare and are normally related to ecclesiastical or monastic institutions.
