The final week at Somerleyton will show you some shots of the hall itself. We did not go inside, there is a lot of ground to cover and things to see just in the gardens I showed you last week.
Finally, in week 3 of this series, we come to Somerleyton Hall itself. This is the view you first get of the house as you drive through the park towards the parking area off to the right.
The grounds of Somerleyton Hall have been home to high status buildings since the post conquest Norman era. In 1240 the existing manorial Hall was rebuilt by Sir Peter Fitzosbert as a magnificent country house on the site of the original medieval Hall.
Four centuries later the house was further enlarged and restyled by John Wentworth and transformed into an archetypal East Anglian Tudor-Jacobean mansion.
