Raveningham Hall and Ditchingham Hall

| Raveningham Hall and Ditchinham Hall

Visit to Raveningham Hall, a late 18th century house built of red brick for Sir Edmund Bacon. Internally, the plasterwork of the entrance hall and the staircase is beautiful and unusual. The stables are arranged round three sides of the yard with a domed clock tower.

After lunch at the Mermaid Pub at Hedingham, we will visit Ditchingham Hall, designed circa 1715. Changes to the house have been made in an extraordinary way still following 17th century patterns. The grounds were landscaped in the 18th century and now appear as much as they did in an engraving by Butcher of 1778.

This trip is for a maximum of 33 people.
