Cattle pasture
Cattle pasture
The public footpath leads across a cattle pasture; young trees, planted to replace fallen trees of an older generation, are sheltered and protected from grazing cattle by the surrounding wooden fences. The history of Felbrigg estate dates back to the middle ages, when a member of the Norman family of Bigod took the name Felbrigg and built a manor house on the site of the present Hall, in the early 15th century. In around 1450 Felbrigg was acquired by John Wyndham, a wealthy merchant from the Norfolk town of Wymondham. The manor house was altered and added on to by following generations until a family member, "Mad Windham", almost ruined the estate and was forced to sell it in 1863, with all its contents. The estate was purchased by John Ketton, a Norwich merchant, whose daughter married a distant cousin of "Mad Windham". Their grandson, Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer (d. 1969) bequeathed the Felbrigg Hall and estate to the National Trust. See > TG1939 : View towards Felbrigg Hall for view of Felbrigg Hall.
