Historic photos from the village of Stanhoe, Norfolk, UK
Once the house was sold plans were put in for an updated building. The extension at the end was demolished and a large square kitchen was built instead. And during the building work the roof of the house collapsed, taking with it some of the frontage, so this part of the building was changed too. The very angular house is now used as a holiday home .w
This photo would have been taken in the early 21st century.
Sorry, this is the first chapel to be used in Stanhoe, “the barn chapel”. Much more information on the other photo site.
More information on “the barn chapel”, the original chapel in Stanhoe, and the Wesleyan Chapel, and The Cross, can be found on 00229, 01136, 01007, 00287. 00903.
The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1892 using money given by Henry Calthrop Hollway of Stanhoe Grange, as the previous small “barn chapel” was too small for the congregation.
“The Cross” , the base of the old cross leading down Cross Lane to St.Peter’s Chapel, is in the foreground.
The “Millennium Cross” , built on top of the old Cross base, was erected to mark the year 2000, and was paid for by the Parish Council. It is still referred to as The Cross , and originally marked the way down Cross Lane to the ancient chapel on Chapel Field, which has long since disappeared.
Same people as in photo 00032 with Mrs Ralli planting a willow tree by the pond. Mrs Wright was a well known member of the community who was involved with The WI and the Chapel.
