Just another 15th century room in Lynn. Cardinal Wolsey was here and had a hand in ensuring the 1437 building was completed with a proper roof and stone frontage in 1520. Many kings and queens have come to this building in subsequent years. Almost all the population of the town has been through it. Certainly on Monday, September 24, 2007, according to a count by Norfolk County Council, 12,451 people used the road underneath this room. And that was just between 7am and 7pm. And 238 of them were bus drivers – passenger numbers weren’t recorded. There were even 15 very brave cyclists. The room is at the top of Lynn South Gate.
