Summary

This large two celled medieval hall house was built around 1500. This seems to have been the prototype of other buildings in New Buckenham apparently adapted mainly for storage or other commercial purposes. The house become 'waste next the street' in 1561 and the consequent repair might give a date for the insertion of the floors, chimney stacks and internal divisions. The roof was raised in the 18th century and replaced in the 19th century. From the early 17th to the early 19th century the property included a tanyard.

This seems to have been the prototype of other buildings in New Buckenham apparently adapted mainly for storage or other commercial purposes. It is probably the house formerly Thomas Undyrwode's on which James Roberdes paid landgable in 1542. Undyrwode was a housewright. Roberde's widow allowed the tenement to become 'waste next the street' in 1561 and the consequent repair might give a date for the insertion of the floors and internal divisions. From the early 17th to the early 19th century the property included a tanyard.
