After a liberal luncheon, provided before the sale, an announcement was made that all 25 Norfolk lots could be combined as one and purchased for the amount required, £28,000 to £30,000.

A gentleman then rose and offered the higher amount which, after about two minutes consideration, was knocked down to Messrs. Youngs, Crawshay & Co., much to the sore disappointment of many intending purchasers present from all parts of the district and beyond.
