House on the Square, King's Lynn

House on the Square, King's Lynn

The unusual decoration of the facade of this house is chequered flint, a type of decoration commonly found in Norfolk. Barbara Jones was probably attracted by the unexpected clash of traditional local craft and the bizarre later addition of a Neo-Classical doorway complete with Corinthian columns. Many of her contributions to the Recording Britain project celebrate time-honoured crafts while mourning their passing in an increasingly mechanised world.
