This house made from Red Deal in the late 1930s was designed by the chief architectural staff of Boulton & Paul and Mrs Tresfon. It was built for the Tresfon family when Gawdy Hall was demolished. It was always the intention of Mr Tresfon that a significant house would be built on the site of the original Hall, but he enjoyed living in the new home so much, he considered it unnecessary.

Gawdy Hall

Mr Tresfon acquired the Estate by auction in 1938 to move closer to Boulton & Paul in Norwich with whom he was Chairman. Unfortunately, the roof was in a desperate need of repair and quotations received far exceeded the purchase price of £37,005, and along with severe taxes imposed at the time, the decision was made in 1939 to demolish the Hall.

The latest addition to the original Gawdy Hall was made in 1878 with this building that ran along the South side - it is the only part of the Hall that remains today.
