Castle Acre Castle and Bailey Gate, Castle Acre, Norfolk

Castle Acre castle, founded soon after the Conquest by the first William de Warenne, initially as a stone 'country house'. Then converted into a strong keep, further defended by stone walls and an immense system of ditched earthworks. Still impressively visible, these are perhaps the finest village earthworks in England.

The delightful village of Castle Acre boasts an extraordinary wealth of history.
