Georgian premises renowned in Norwich because of its statue of a stag with antlers is partly for rent for £13,000 a year.

Number 8, Orford Hill was a gunmaker's in Victorian times earmarked by the stag statue on the roof, originally created in the 1890s.

The original stag had a wooden sign, long since disappeared, stating 'gunmaker' advertising the trade of George Jeffries and later, Darlow's.

The original stag was apparently removed after a fire in 1973 and it took until the summer of 1984 until it was replaced with a fibreglass replica.

The property is partly let to a dental practice and hairdresser but with a vacancy on its second floor offering 621 sqft.
