The Old School House was built in 1844 as a Wesleyan Chapel. The design is typical of early Norfolk non conformist chapel architecture. In 1851 there was a religious census made (the only time this has ever happened). It records that an average of 70 people attended services at this chapel and records that on Sunday 30th March 1851 52 people attended the morning service and 46 in the afternoon including 12 Sunday scholars. In the 1880s the congregation became more numerous and affluent and then built the more traditionally designed Chapel which still stands next door. This building was used was then used as a Sunday school and chapel rooms. Older residents of the village remember going to the Chapel services and the Sunday school and have happy memories of the Sunday school outings to Hunstanton. (The really canny ones used to go on the church treats too!). More

About the neighbourhood
Close to small market town of Downham Market andin easy reach by car to the North Norfolk coast, Cambridge, Ely and Norwich, Plenty of parking Car essential
Getting around
Wereham is a small village about 4 miles from Downham market. That’s a very limited service so the car is strongly recommended. You could get a taxi from station if you wanted a quiet weekend away from it all. The pub opposite it’s very friendly and serves food Wednesday Thursday Friday and Sunday evenings. Seaside is 40 minutes drive. Ely Cambridge Norwich Thetford Forest Oxborough are all within easy reach
