A BRIEF HISTORY A quintessential William and Mary residence typical of important houses from that period. Occupied by Thomas Warburton, Archdeacon of Norwich from 1763 to 1797.
Candlers has been a doctors house since 1853 when Dr John Candler set up his practice there. He and his son were friends of Sir Alfred Munnings KCVO, past president of the Royal Academy. Dr Candler's eldest son Edmund was a well known novelist and travel writer of his time and a friend and correspondent of E M Forster and Joseph Conrad.
