TM 38 SW

4/46 Ruins in grounds of South
- Elmham Hall


Ruins, standing to the east of South Elmham Hall on the inner edge of the
moat, and variously said to be of a chapel or gatehouse, though there is no
particular evidence for either function. Possibly C14. Mainly in rubble
flint with an admixture of small red bricks. All that remain are the north
west gable wall, which stands to full height with 2 rectangular window
openings, and part of the side walls. There is some indication that the
building had an upper floor.
