Oxburgh Hall: Norfolk
From being partly gutted by fire during the Civil War to facing the threat of demolition: although now a beautiful and romantic manor, Oxburgh Hall has a long and often tumultuous history. But this guidebook is not just about a building: it is about the Bedingfeld family, who have lived in and been loyal to Oxburgh since it was first built in 1482. These pages tell their story, including their strong Royal connections and Catholic faith, unwavering even when the religion was illegal.
The guidebook then goes on to explore Oxburgh's fascinating house, gardens and grounds, from needlework produced by Queen Mary when in captivity to a secret priest hole. Also featuring an insight into life here today written by Sir Henry Bedingfeld, 10th Baronet, this is a comprehensive and fascinating guide to an unforgettable place.
