EDP Norfolk - - Heritage -

An at­mo­spheric set of ru­ins, this was built by the Hey­don fam­ily who rose rapidly to promi­nence as a pow­er­ful fam­ily in the 15th cen­tury and fell from grace as swiftly as they rose, leav­ing most of the cas­tle in ru­ins by 1650. Ad­mis­sion free. www.english-her­itage.co.uk Hall Lane, Ba­con­sthorpe, NR25 9LN
