135 King street is a mid-17th century house, with the shop front rebuilt in around 1830.  Earlier flint and brick on the side elevation in the Row is probably from the 16th century.  The façade has two 17th century gable projections, and the interior has early beams, including a 16th century reeded bridging beam.

A Grade II listed building, 135 King Street was on the buildings at risk register, and Wellington was appointed by Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, following a competitive tender, to transform the derelict building into a new set of offices, as well as a new community centre and a number of residential apartments.

As well as specialist heritage conservation skills, a complete restoration of a very historic building like this requires a sympathetic approach and a real feel for local heritage, things which Wellington is uniquely positioned to provide.
