A historic former maltings building in Norfolk is for sale for £825,000 with planning for new homes.
The building, in Old Market Street, Thetford, is Grade II listed and was operated as part of the brewery owned by the Bidwell family until 1902.
The firm was then sold to Eustace Quilter with 104 public houses for £104,250 but still traded as Bidwell & Co until acquired by Bullard & Sons in 1924 and was closed.
The building has been the site of a furniture store and a bus station.
It has been used in recent years for a variety of commercial tenants now with two existing residential units let on assured shorthold tenancies.

Agents Lacy, Scott & Knight state at the point of sale "all commercial tenants will have vacated".
The overall site totals 0.58 acres containing the main maltings building.
