Attached are two picture postcards.
The postcards both date from the very earliest part of the 20th century.

Kirstead House

Kirstead Rectory and Church

I came across the following picture recently
and thought it might be of interest.
It comes from a book titled 'Beautiful Norfolk Buildings' by Stanley J. Wearing.
Its location is shown on the Ordinance Survery map. - Jeremy Woolsey
