TG3216 : Old Hall

taken 10 years ago, near to Woodbastwick, Norfolk, Great Britain

Old Hall
Old Hall
The Old Hall is tucked away in the southwestern corner of the Woodbastwick estate, nestling in a bend beside the River Bure, near Decoy Broad. Later on in the year, when the trees are in leaf and fresh green reeds are again growing on the river bank, the view to the building will be totally obscured. See also > TG3216 : Glimpse at Old Hall through trees. The moorings here are private. The writing on the sign at left says "Private No Entry". The view was taken from a boat travelling on the River Bure.

Woodbastwick estate, a private farming estate in the heart of the Norfolk Broads National Park, is owned by the Cator family who have lived here since the early 1800's. During the Second World War, the property was used as a Red Cross auxiliary hospital for patients from the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital but the patients were evacuated after a machine-gun attack by a German plane in 1940. After the war, part of the Old Hall was used as an Agricultural Training College.
