Castle ruins, Baconsthorpe
This view was taken through the inner gatehouse. Baconsthorpe Castle, now in ruins, is a moated and fortified 15th-century manor house which was owned by the Heydon family, who eventually abandoned it. Sir John Heydon is believed to have built the inner gatehouse and curtain wall during the turbulent Wars of the Roses and it was Sir Christopher Heydon who converted part of the house into a textile factory. He also added the turreted outer gateway which was inhabited until 1920.
