Weeting Castle
Weeting Castle
Weeting Castle is a 12th-century ruin with a three-story-high tower in Weeting, near Brandon, Norfolk. Despite the name, it is not a castle but actually a fortified manor house. It has a large open hall and an attached two-storey chamber block. There's a domed brick ice-house on the northwest corner of the moat and a small car park next to the church. The moat was added in the 14th century. The place is thought to have been abandoned in 1390. The manor was built on a 10th C settlement. It is now owned by English Heritage. Entry is free and the location is open all year for visitors.
