Part of Lavenham Guildhall
The Guildhall of Corpus Christi facing onto the Market Place was built about 1530 and was one of four guildhalls that once existed in Lavenham. The Guildhall and the two adjacent buildings seen here form a section of an early Tudor street. It came to the National Trust in 1951.

The primary purpose of the Lavenham guilds was religious and after the guilds were dissolved during the Reformation it became the Town Hall from 1596 to about 1700. After that it was a prison which closed in 1787, and later a workhouse, an almshouse and a wool store.
