DESCRIPTION + /

The friary was the earliest Carmelite house to be established in Norfolk. It was founded in 1242 by Ralph Hempnale and William Calethorpe on a site at Bradmer, east of Burnham Norton village, and was moved to its present site in 1252. The friary was enlarged in 1298, and again in 1353. The friary was dissloved in 1538 and the land was eventually sold in 1544 to Lady Anne Calthorpe. It later passed to the local branch of the Pepys family, relatives of the diarist Samuel.
