Warehouse now known as The Green Quay stands parallel to the
River Ouse. It is a fine example of an old Tudor Warehouse
and was built in the heyday of the Elizabethian age around
the 1580s. At the height of King's Lynn prosperity, this warehouse
was the lifeblood of the early town and was used to store
corn loaded off visiting ships. This building was constructed
by one of East Anglia's wealthiest corn and salt merchants,
Thomas Clayborne and materials from nearby monasteries are
said to be reused in The Green Quay including those from very
rich and diverse time periods.
