Marriot's 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.
