One clear and chilly Sunday morning in January, we decided to take an impromptu trip to the Norfolk coast which as with lots of the Norfolk county is full of lots of photo opportunities. Castle Rising is one of those opportunities.
Castle Rising is located of the A149 on the route towards Hunstanton and is one of the most famous 12th century castles in England.
Built on the site of an early Norman church (thought to be the first parish church of rising), the 13 acre site comprises of a stone keep and bailey within imposing earthworks, some rising to the height of 18m.
The castle was still in use until the 17th century undergoing a larger number of changes and alterations in its time. Since the 17th century, at which point some of the castle was stripped in order to use for repairs in other areas of the county. The castle was opened to the public in 1900, and is open most of the year to visitors.
Below are a selection of shots from our visit.
