Narford Hall, the south facade (detail)
In William White's History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845), Narford Hall is described as "a handsome brick mansion, with a well-wooded lawn and pleasure grounds, built by Sir Andrew Fountaine, who was knighted by William III., and made K.B. by patent, in 1726, at which time he was vice-chamberlain to the Prince of Wales." Sir Andrew, an antiquarian, art collector and amateur architect, was born in Salle (North Norfolk) and died at Narford Hall, where he is buried. When his huge collection was sold and dispersed in 1884 it is said to have taken four days to auction. Narford Hall is adjoined by St Mary's church > LinkExternal link.
