 Norfolk Baconsthorpe Castle


The extensive ruins of Baconsthorpe Castle, a moated and fortified 15th century manor house, are a testament to the rise and fall of a prominent Norfolk family, the Heydons. Over 200 years, successive generations of this ambitious family built, then enlarged, and finally abandoned this castle.

Sir John Heydon probably built the strong inner gatehouse and curtain wall, during the turbulent Wars of the Roses. In more peaceful times, his descendant Sir Christopher Heydon added the turreted outer gateway and part of the house was converted into a textile factory.
