    Default 1930's Detached House, Eaton , Norwich


    I can't find any history at all behind this house suffice to say it was huge with around 3 floors and numerous bathrooms. Very trashed all the way through but definetly worth a mooch round in the early autumn morning. The only thing I can say is that we think it's around the early 30s in date.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Pretty sure it was mate, the house itself was trashed to hell, but my mate Wagg would have loved the wallpaper!!!!

    That's a cracking find, but it's such a tragedy that it has been left to get into the state it is in.

    If I had the money, that'd be exactly the sort of house I'd like to renovate. I'd even be brave and go to Norfolk!

    Thanks Richard, this had been staring us in the eyes for some time and we'd seen it on the way back from many explores. Not the biggest, not the bet but ok all the same.:)

    Very nice indeed. Looks like squatters might have been in there?

    ( My late Mum used to have a pair of those statues, the carrot farmer dressed in yellow waitcoat and his wife in a blue dress! LOL! Brought back memories! )
