Known locally as ‘The Exorcist’s House’, 7 Chapel Lane is one of King’s Lynn’s most historic properties.

It’s the former home of a member of the clergy from nearby St Nicholas’ Chapel who would perform exorcisms in the late middle ages.

The property is also connected to a defining moment in the town’s history where the last exorcism to have been carried out in the house led to a witch being burnt in the Tuesday Market Place.

The Grade II listed cottage, which is on the market for £220,000, is believed to have been built in the 1300s and renovated in 1635.

Now comprising two bedrooms with an en-suite to the master, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, family bathroom and a courtyard garden, the property also retains many original features such as exposed beam work and an inglenook fireplace.

Paul Nobbs, assistant manager at William H Brown King’s Lynn, said: “We are thrilled to bring to market this wonderful and unique home which is steeped in local history.

“The property defies its local name and legend and today offers the buyer a delightful cottage in a lovely central location next to St Nicholas’ Chapel.”
