|Grid Reference:||TG 48408 05279|
|Parish:||BURGH CASTLE, GREAT YARMOUTH, NORFOLK|
Building dates to 1590s, extended in 17th and 18th centuries and around 1900.
Contains exposed beams and fireplaces and has a cellar.
Used from 1669 to 1680 as an Independent church when the congregation were expelled from Great Yarmouth under the Act of Uniformity. See (S1).
The photograph given by (S1) shows nothing pre 19th century and the account must be treated with caution but seems too detailed to be completely wrong and the building is shown by (S2) demonstrating that it has earlier origins.
However it is not listed.
