    Default Georgian stable block and walled garden.Norfolk.


    At a loose end wondering what to do.so I found this grade two listed stable block.i could not find any pics of it so headed off to see what it was like.i was very surprised how stunningly beautiful the building was,the stable block was part of a Manor House and was built in the 1790's.the Manor House was destroyed in 1939.the stable block remains but is in a very bad state as I could see when I went upstairs.with holes in the floors in several of the rooms.the stable block is a neo classical design.with three full height brick arches.i could nor acsess the downstairs as its used for some storage and padlocked up.as I ventured out it was nice to see at the front of it a large walled garden with a nice Victorian style greenhouse.i know most people would not bother looking at this but I enjoyed it and was certainly worth the trek to it to avoid the farm house a little way from it.

    An original gate to the land of the house I found in woodland.



    The view from the front of the main stable block























    The door that headed to the wall garden and greenhouse





























    Nice to see local workmanship being used in the greenhouse window winder.boulton and pauls was a massive maunfactuarer of metal work and other engineering goods employing hundreds of workers,occupying a massive site in the heart of Norwich.and was a major player in the war effort.manufacturing planes and prefabricated buildings.the German airforce tried to bomb the factory.the factoryis all gone now.but I think the company continues but in a small way.



    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Lovely, especially liked the greenhouse.

    The pipes suggest to me the walls were heated?

    I enjoyed that Mikey, there aren't many such places available to view anymore, the growing of the then exotic fruits was a competitive pastime for the manor houses, they were heated and there will be a boiler house nearby (Probably),

    Thank you smiler.the pipes ran through.there was a small hut out the back.a little way from the green house.it had pipes running through it.but it was really overgrown.I guessed that was the boiler room.

    Nicely done. I looked on the net and found that not only did Boulton and Paul probably made the gate but they also made prefabricated shepherds huts.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
