(West Side)
TM 4290 2/93 St Peter's House


18th century. 2 storeys, attic and basement. Red brick with parapet and
plinth. Centre breaks forward with pediment. Wood ogee bracket cornice.
Pantiles. 2:3:2 windows, sash with flush frames and flat arches. 6-panel
door in wood case, left of centre, with pilasters and entablature. Good
interior: some panelling. Rear building in Strawberry Hill Gothic; stucco
exterior, both exterior and interior in full style, almost complete survival,
and includes fragments of early stained glass.
The house stands on the site or churchyard of St Peter's Church which was
demolished in the mid 16th century, and it is possible that these fragments
were from that building or from St Mary's Church, Beccles, demolished in the
latter part of the same century. NMR photos.

All 4 sides of the Old Market contribute in varying degrees to its general
character. The Old Market is in an important position near the centre of
the town.
