Abstract :
Edward Fellowes's Norfolk seat, Haveringland Hall, was built in the 1840s to Edward Blore's design. It was the last major country house constructed in the county before the railways changed patterns of movement for materials and the employment of general building contractors became usual. The project was organised in a conservative way, with a directly-recruited labour force supervised by an able clerk of the works. The building process has been reconstructed from the accounts and other estate papers. While low wages in a period of economic depression kept the cost down it was still an expensive house in relation to Norfolk rents alone, although spending was well within total estate income. ;
