Originally a cottage home of a Mousehold shepherd, \\\’The King William IV now stands in the garden grounds. It has been a tavern for at least 178 years and is mentioned in Joseph Manning\\\’s 1834 survey of licensed premises. Telegraph Lane , in those days would have been no more than a footpath leading from Gas Hill to Yarmouth Road. The lane was named after the semaphoring system used in 1807, when the site of the water tower was used as a vantage point to receive signals from Great Yarmouth in the event of a French invasion.
