The farm was given to the French Walloon Church in Norwich in 1730, explaining its unusual name. The present building is a 19th century red brick building and a stone porch to the west of the house is said to belong to the original farmhouse. This porch however resembles a 14th or 15th century church porch and may have been added to the 19th century farm at a later date.
