Abstract:
The results of archaeological monitoring of alterations to a well located within the current staircase hall of Thorpe Hall, which is a designated (grade II* listed) heritage asset. The Hall (also known as Thorpe Old Hall) is a late 16th century to early 17th century house which incorporates elements of an early 14th century court yarded manor house. The site was formerly the palace and manorial centre of the medieval Bishops of Norwich within their manor of Thorpe. A brick lined well was recorded along with archaeological deposits exposed by the trench around it. The well shaft was lined with a honeycombe pattern of post-medieval bricks and capped with a brick dome. The well may have been used as a 19th century pump source and later as a modern rubble infilled sump. Although the well lining dates from the 19th century the original siting of the well may be early post-medieval, placed in an area between the two surviving wings of the house, prior to 19th century infilling with a hall stairway. Deposits exposed during the works included clay rich make-up layers for a floor surface, contemporary to a brick and mortar wall of possible late 15th to 16th century date. Above the floor surface was an ashy residue, which is conjectured to relate to a fire which severely damaged the east-west wing in the 18th century. Above this lay a levelling deposit of chalk waste, which represents 19th century preparatory work as part of the extensive rebuild.
