The remains of a Norman manor house which became a castle with earthworks, set by the side of a village.
Founded after the Norman conquest in the 1070s by William de Wavenne who was awarded the land by William the Conqueror. Although there is not much built stone left the earthworks are still very impressive and together with the priory and walled town of Castle Acre comprises one of the best examples of Norman estate planning in the country.
