160 King Street is a Grade II listed building, dating from the 16th century. As the only surviving example of a timber-framed building in the urban area of Great Yarmouth, the building holds enormous historic and architectural value. The jettied upper floor is characteristic of Great Yarmouth’s medieval Row houses, creating a significant and tangible connection with the town's past.

Left vacant in 2001 and having consequently fallen into disrepair, the building came into the Trust’s ownership after a compulsory purchase order was served by the Borough Council. In January 2020, the Trust was awarded a grant of £350,000 from the Architectural Heritage Fund, enabling a comprehensive programme of restoration and repair. Once restored, the property will provide a commercial space on the ground  floor, with residential accommodation above.
