The former Baptist Church (1801). When Richard visited, most of the site was hidden by tall fencing, the church having closed in 2016, and the site earmarked for a housing development. The church is shown on a map of 1886 as Baptist Chapel (General). Richard's photo shows a later extension, dating from the 1990's. The congregation is now meeting in Fakenham College Conference Hall, on a temporary basis, while their new church is being built on land off Clipbush Lane (circa TF 935 308). TF 919 294.
