 Costessey - The BUSH
c1925 - the rebuilt house

The original house was described in the late 19thC as
`A place of ill repute - A haunt of Harpies and members of the Trotting fraternity.'

Henry Charles Miller was accused, by Inspector Walter Roy, Tuesday 2nd March 1909, of allowing drunkenness on his premises. Soldier William Bugdale was home on furlough and had been in the Bush to closing time. Police-constable Carter said he had observed Bugdale outside lying on the ground hopelessly drunk. A witness confirmed that Bugdale had been quiet whilst indoors, not appeared drunk and had left normally. Another witness corroborated the observation.
Case dismissed.

Visited many times by Sir Alfred Munnings and painted by him.

The house was rebuilt in the early part of the 20thC.
