House No. 69 on 1845 Magistrates list.


The Norfolk Chronicle of 7th August 1819 reported that...
`Samuel Green of the Holkham Arms, late Foundry Bridge, returns his thanks to numerous friends.......has made alterations to the house and stables......to enable comfortable accommodation to men and horses..'

House said to be run in a disorderly manner at the September 1852 sessions. The police objected to licence renewal and it was refused by the magistrates.

January 1851 - William Brown (20) and Letitia Broom (29) were found guilty and sentenced to twelve months imprisonment with hard labour for stealing a box, two half crowns and ten shillings from the person of John Woodthorpe.
Mr. Woodthorpe had been drinking at the Holkham Arms and left in a state of intoxication. William Brown and three others had knocked him down, grabbed the box containing the money and passed it to Letitia Broom, who ran off. Woodthorpe held on to Brown until the watchman came up.
