Keswick (St. Mary)

KESWICK (St. Mary), a parish, in the union of Henstead, hundred of Humbleyard, E. division of Norfolk, 3 miles (S. S. W.) from Norwich, on the road to Ipswich; containing 117 inhabitants. It is situated on the south bank of the river Yare, and comprises 712 acres; the lands are in good cultivation, and the scenery is picturesque. The New Hall is a handsome mansion on an eminence, in grounds beautifully laid out, and commanding fine views. The living is a rectory, consolidated in 1597 with that of Intwood, and valued in the king's books at £5: there is a glebe of about 30 acres, with a small cottage. The church, which is in ruins, appears to have been a small edifice, with a round tower of great antiquity.
