Secrets of a former Norwich hall will be revealed at a free talk.

The live event on the history of Costessey Hall is taking place on Friday February 16 at the Costessey Centre, on Longwater Lane, Costessey, at 10am and noon.

Anyone is welcome and the talk is being led by historian and Costessey Town Council member Paul Cooper.

It is free to attend but donations are welcome.

The talk will reveal aspects of the former hall’s history from the days of the last Lord Stafford up to the present day.

Costessey Hall was a manor house and used to stand four miles west of Norwich.

The first mention of it dates to 1066, when William I gave it to Alan Rufus, Earl of Richmond.

Costessey Hall was demolished in 1925.

The only part of the building that remains is the belfry block by the 18th fairway of Costessey Park Golf Course.
