'In the track which becomes the hall drive, to the left of the post office in Neatishead Street as one approaches from the A1151, is an ancient flint wall said to be part of a castle.'
See (S1).

May 1979. Visit.
This is in fact the stables of Beeston Hall, in Gothick style and presumably of the same date, 1780s. Of squared flint with brick trimmings, it has a central archway, with blank pointed windows each side, beyond these pilasters then pointed doorways. Adjoining on west is Gothic Cottage, two storeys with stepped gable. Only medieval work is a reset head corbel used as keystone of arch.
E. Rose (NAU), 16 May 1979.
