Cromer Hall
Cromer Hall
Viewed across the ha-ha bordering Hall Road. The original Cromer Hall was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in a Gothic style, with heavily mullioned windows and towers. When the author of the Sherlock Holmes detective mysteries, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), visited Cromer (to recoup from a recent trip to South Africa where he had contracted enteric fever), he heard of a legend according to which one of Black Shuck's - the 'hell hound' of Norfolk - tracks runs through what today is Mill Lane, past what used to be the Royal Links Hotel (destroyed by fire in 1949) and over the hill into the grounds of Cromer Hall. It is believed that this ghostly story inspired him to write one of his greatest mysteries, the 'Hound of the Baskervilles' (1902); Doyle knew Lord Cromer and visited with him during his stay, and the description of Cromer Hall almost perfectly matches the description of Baskerville Hall.
