Hedingham Castle, built in 1133, contains some of the finest Norman architecture in England, set in 160 acres of formal gardens, lakes and woodland. It is the private home of the Lindsay family, descendants of the Earls of Oxford, and is open to the public from April to October.
The grounds provide some wonderful spaces for the perfect day out. Classic landscaped beauty side by side with wild and rugged woodland make for wonderful walks with plenty of room for private picnics among the rhododendrons or in the shade of the trees by the lake.
Beyond the Tudor bridge the Castle’s keep rises over the inner bailey, its massive, 110 feet high walls containing some of the best preserved Norman interiors in England. Five fascinating floors linked by a spiral staircase take you back in time to another age.
With wild areas of woodland and the staggering earthworks of the original defenses, the gardens of Hedingham Castle are a constantly changing delight to the senses. There’s a bog garden, mature trees and lawns running down to the lake; no matter what the time of year, there’s always something wonderful to see.
Please note that the AGM will be held on the middle floor of the keep which is only accessible via a steep spiral stone staircase.
