If you go out for a walk today you never know what you might find……in this case a spooky house. On my recent exploration of Kings Lynn, I just snapped anything that stood still long enough, which included a lot of buildings that looked interesting. It wasn’t until I started to research them that I now know what I snapped. On my way to see St Nicholas Church I saw a little white house right next to the railings of the church.
Going through the gates and looking at the side of the building, I thought what an odd little building with the door straight on to the churchyard, why would that be there. I now know that the house was attached to the church and one way that a Catholic priest could progress through the church was to hold the position of Exorcist. The building is said to be haunted. I have no idea how old it is, could be 15th/ 16th century….I am sure someone could tell me….
Update 2014….The house went up for sale in 2013 and from the details I found out that the house was built in 1635 and replaced an older house. I have also read that this new house was haunted, the daughter of a family who moved in, saw a figure of a man, could be just a story.
