Closer to home for me these days, some great history can be seen in the county that contains Beetley.
During the 14th century, this West Norfolk town was the most important port in all of England. Some of the historic dockside has been resored.
The old part of the city has remained the same since the Elizabethan age. These photos are modern, it still looks the same today.
The stately home where Anne Boleyn was born in 1501. The house as it is shown here was mainly built in 1616, by Sir Henry Hobart. It is now managed by The National Trust, and open to visitors.
A moated country house, built by in 1482 by Sir Edmund Bedingfield, and later crenellated. He was a supporter of the Yorkists during the Wars of The Roses. Now managed by The National Trust, and open to visitors.
St Benet’s Abbey.
Close to the east coast near Great Yarmouth, this dates from 1022, at the time of King Harold Godwinson who was killed in 1066 at The Battle of Hastings. Sir John Fastoff (Shakespeare’s Falstaff) was buried here.
