Full description

Small flint house, altered in 19th century, containing an ovolo mullioned window. Probably of early 17th century date, this may be the parlour end of a larger house now encased by Wensum House to the north, or else perhaps a three storey single cell building. Fireplace bressumer of about 1600 probably reused from elsewhere at a later date.
See (S1) for full details in file.
