Originally sited on Market Street near to the Bear Stores.
Later at what became Nelson Street. Referenced also as at Mundesley Road and at Lower Street.

Once the headquarters of the `Press Gang' and in later years visited yearly by a Recruiting Sergeant. A cage was situated opposite to hold drunks and presumably some of those pressed into service.

It was reported 17th January 1852 that on Old Christmas Day Mr. Robert Hubbard invited 52 of his poor and aged neighbours to partake in a bountiful dinner of beef and plumb pudding. Ten persons, who owing to their infirmity were unable to attend, were provided with a liberal supply of the good things, sent to their homes.
The Vicar, the Rev. Mr. Eden, entered the room and after an address, dismissed them with a donation.
