The Great Hospital - Birkbeck Hall
The Grade 2 listed hall was designed by the Norwich architect Edward Boardman and dates from 1901. Built of flint and red brick it has red brick dressings and stone details, stepped brick gables and a pantile roof with two brick end chimneys. Some medieval masonry is contained in the buttresses on the east side (seen here). Its five bays are defined by buttresses, with the south bay adjoining the passage arch of the Chaplain's House. A small wooden Tudor-style arch > Link in the passage bears the date 1901 and the initials HB (Henry Birkbeck) in its decorated spandrels, and a blocked window above. This building has been converted to offices.
