Outflow of Felbrigg Pond
Outflow of Felbrigg Pond
The bricked-in pipe seen in mid-distance, emerging from the ground, allows water from Felbrigg Pond to flow off in southerly direction, forming a small stream. Solar panels (seen at right) have been set up in this fenced-off area. 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.
