About Heydon

This is a village that is used to publicity, it has been the setting for numerous films including The Go-Between, made in 1970 starring Alan Bates and the beautiful Julie Christie.

The village is clustered around a picturesque green with the church on its northern side. The expansion of the grounds of Heydon Hall, caused the village to take-in two outlying hamlets early in the 19th-century. Fortunately, this detracted nothing from the overall serenity of this lovely corner of Norfolk, which is built of the very attractive red brick used to build the famous Hall in the 16th-century for Henry Dynne. The same brick was used again in 1887, when Colonel W.E.G Lytton-Bullwer built a well on the village green to celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. The Bullwer family have owned the village and Heydon Manor since 1762.

There is a wonderful ambience and olde-worlde charm running through the village, making it a perfect place to enjoy a few hours away from it all! The vast parkland to the Hall is open all the year round, it has dense wooded areas where you can see pheasants and other creatures of the wild, but the gardens remain private and can only be visited when advertised.

To complete your visit there is an attractive village shop, a tea-room and a typical village pub.
