Framlingham is a magnificent example of a late 12th-century castle, set in a beautiful location in the Suffolk countryside, overlooking Framlingham Mere. Built by Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, one of the most influential people at the court of the Plantagenet Kings, the castle, together with the mere, was designed both as a stronghold and a proclamation of power and status. The castle was briefly owned by Mary Tudor, and was used as a rallying point for her support in the turbulent days after the death of Edward VI. In the mid-17th century a poorhouse was built within the walls of the castle. This guidebook includes a tour of the castle and its inhabitants, illustrated with new drawings, photographs, plans and historical images.
