Country house in norfolk dating from 1240

The Dales lies in its own sheltered grounds on the edge of the quiet village of Upper Sheringham.Sheringham Park next door, which was laid out by Humphrey Repton and now looked after by the National Trust, is much visited for spectacular displays of rhododendrons and azaleas in season.

The finds are changing the perception of how medieval worshippers viewed religion and interacted with their churches.Imagine walking into your local church, pulling a penknife from your pocket, and scratching a little drawing into the wall: a geometric design, a drawing of a boat, even a few meaningful words.Today that would be sacrilege, but a new survey of the walls of medieval churches in England is revealing that many of them are covered in riots of graffiti, scratched into what were once boldly colored walls.That period of prominence explains why the seemingly insignificant village sports a glorious church of cathedralesque proportions.As the large wooden door shuts behind him, Matthew Champion, project director of the Norfolk and Suffolk Medieval Graffiti Surveys, proceeds to the ornate octagonal font that dominates one end of the nave of St. Its elaborately carved stone panels depict religious scenes, including a baptism and the ordination of a priest.There is the famous Phil Price Rally School which is a great well-known attraction where many famous people go, needs to be booked in advance.

Feel free to look at the website: Alternatively head to Kington and pick up the Black and White Village Trail, a delightful meandering through beautiful little towns and villages peppered with black and white medieval timbered houses, as well as fabulous country pubs and cafes.

Its defences would have included an extensive system of inter-connecting walls, moats, and gatehouses. Dover Castle was founded in the 12th century and has been described as the "Key to ENGLAND" due to its defensive significance. During the reign of Henry II t the castle began to take recognisable shape.

The inner and outer baileys and the great keep belong to this time.

Maurice the Engineer was responsible for building the keep, one of the last rectangular keeps ever built.
