Town House, Cess

At TG445182 just off what is now Footpath No8 a ‘Town House’ or ‘Workhouse’ once stood to house paupers as shown on the above map. It was used until about 1777 when the ‘House of Industry’ (Workhouse) was opened at nearby Rollesby and Martham paupers were housed there.

There is no sign of the property now but parts of the existing house called Willowcroft which is next to the plot are said to date from the time of the Town House. However, successive owners remain sceptical.
