Visit to Raynham Hall and Hindringham Hall
- Raynham Hall & Hindringham Hall |
Coach trip to two historic houses in Norfolk. Visit Raynham Hall, near Fakenham, (by kind permission of the The Marquess Townshend of Raynham). The present Raynham Hall was started in 1622 by Sir Roger Townshend Bt. and was strongly influenced by Venetian and Dutch styles. After a very good two course lunch at the Sculthorpe Mill visit Hindringham Hall (by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Charles Tucker). Hindringham Hall was built ca 1502 in the Elizabethan style by a branch of the Hastings family of Elsing. It is moated and of two storeys. Have tea and cakes at Hindringham and leave soon after 4 pm.
NB As Raynham Hall is never open to the general public and
only rarely to groups there are no seats to sit on in the Hall and they will not
allow anyone with a walking stick or other walking aids into the house for
health and safely reasons. There are also no coffee facilities.
