This typical example of an old fen house stands forlorn and
isolated amid the rich, fertile acres of Feltwell Fen. Small
buildings of this type - with wooden walls, pantiled roof and brick
chimney column - were put up last century for farm workers.
Many of them were swept away during the floods in 1912 and again in 1952-3, and those which survived have mostly fallen into ruins or been taken down. This one has not been lived in for some years.
Oxidation of the peat soil since the land was drained - the "shrinking Fen" - has exposed the lower parts of the building.
This is thought to be the last remaining Fen house in the Feltwell area.
