Left by landowner Thomas Randall to his grandsons in 1738, one of several houses in his estate.

A carriers service to Norwich was run by Samuel Gooch
3 times a week.

Advertised To Be Let, February 1861.
Including two good Granaries, stable, good Gig-house and Piggeries.
Apply at the Counting House of Messrs. Cann & Clarke, Wymondham.

In the early 1900's the K-NUTS Boxing Club was housed here.
Run by the Reverend Gilbert H. Bartlett.

At the Licensing Meeting of Tuesday 2nd February 1909 Superintendant Dunn said that the DOVE was 61 yards away from the FEATHERS and *191 yards from the COCK.  He added that the accommodation at the FEATHERS was far superior.
Mr Dove said his trade averaged over two barrels a week and his customers were mainly of the labouring class. He paid £11 a year rent for the house and for 1½ acres of land. His rates were £3 a year.
For Morgans Brewery it was said that
Henry Dove had been at the house for 13 years and had been given Notice to Quit. The brewers would be likely to put in a younger tenant should the licence be renewed. A regular trade averaging *116½ barrels a year was done at the house, which supplied, to some extent, a class that the Feathers did not supply.
The magistrates decided to refer the licence.
(Provisional licence granted)



Licence refused at Compensation Authority meetings of 21st and 23rd June 1909.
Reported as an alehouse, owned by Morgans Brewery Co.  and run by licensee Henry Dove

After closure the property was used by William Carter for his wood turning business.
(He was one of the last craftsmen to make brushes).

After 1945 the house became a private dwelling.
