Felbrigg Hall Gardens, Norfolk, 16th June 2017


Continuing on our way to Cromer, we decided to take a stop off at Felbrigg Hall, and although the Hall itself was shut we did take time wander around the gardens.

Felbrigg estate, originally home to the Felbrigg family, was long the home of members of the Wyndham family, since the first John Wyndham, acquired the estate from the Felbrigg family. The last owner of the house before it passed into National Trust ownership was Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer. The original heir, Robert’s brother Richard, was killed in action in the Second World War.

Felbrigg garden is laid out in two different styles. The west garden is laid out in the style of a typical Victorian pleasure ground, arranged around an 18th-century orangery. The orchard has been planted with varieties of fruit known to have grown in the garden during the 19th century.

As the house was shut, I didn’t get many pictures, but here are few I took from around the gardens.

As I say, only a brief one, but hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks for looking
