Lazar House part of Heritage Open Day this Sunday – 900 years of history!

The Assist Trust base of Lazar House will be open this coming Sunday (11th September) as part of the Heritage Open Day event that is taking place across the country.

Lazar House is a significantly historic building in Norwich (219, Sprowston Road, NR3 4HX, situated on the corner of Gilman Road) as it dates back to the 12th century.

Built by Herbert de Losinga originally as a Leper Hospital for the City of Norwich, Lazar House has had a variety of uses since then; as a dovecote, a barn and as a branch library, before the Assist Trust took residence in 2004.

Come and have a look round the well preserved interior and enjoy a cream tea at the same time – opening times are between 11am and 3pm.


Warhammer, a local gaming group that uses Lazar House every Tuesday evening, will also have a display of miniatures of Star Wars and Marvel characters!
