Hingham Market Day
Market Day c1920

When renovations were being carried out in September 1954, an compartment was found within the chimney breast being worked on. The space was large enough to contain a person and incorporated an alcove in the wall fitted with a shelf. It was not part of the chimney since there was no evidence of soot. It was suggested to have been a `priest's hole'.
During the restoration a letter dated 1836, a copy of the Daily News dated 1846 and a 1903 copy of the Eastern Daily Press were among the finds.
A pair of Cromwellian boots had been found some years earlier.
