Full Description

2010: Warrens of Breckland survey identified a possible rabbit warren suggested by documentary evidence from 1754. The exact extent of the warren is not know. The only reference is to an 80-acre warren of which the ownership is passed from John Holderness to Sir William Bunbury in 1754.
Also named lodge in 1812. Earliest know date 1754 (ref deed of ownership WSROB Er8/452/69).
A "warren house" is noted on the Highway Diversion Order of January 1812 (WSROB Q/SH/72) and is also marked on Bryant's 1824 Map. Two modern dwellings now occupy the site (S1).

It is mapped and named as 'Warren House' on 1836 OS 1st edition map (defined wooded areas are mapped on this and later maps adjoining to the west and north of the road which may be the warren boundaries).
