College of Education website. 

Keswick Hall, south of Norwich, Norfolk , nestling in beautiful lush parkland, was the educational portal through

which thousands of  aspiring teachers passed en route to becoming school teachers. The building, originally the property of the Gurney family, became the home of the former Norwich Teacher Training College from 1948 until enforced closure in 1981.
