Type of record:Building
Name:Medieval cart shed to west of site of Ranworth Old Hall


This open-fronted cartshed is medieval date and therefore predated Ranworth Old Hall - the 16th-/17th century house that previously stood to the east (NHER 14448). It has a square plan, flint walls incorporating some brickwork and a 19th-century thatched hipped foot. There are the remains of clasping buttresses at the angles, together with vestiges of ashlar facing - suggesting suggesting this building was a possible source of at least some of the earlier masory observed on the site of the hall.
