About Burgh Castle Roman Fort

The ruins of Burgh Castle are in the care of English heritage, they consist of little more than the remains of impressive Roman walls belonging to a Roman fort of about AD 300. This was one of the Saxon shore camps built to keep out Saxon raiders.

A small Norman motte-and-bailey castle was built, but there is no longer any trace of this. None-the-less, the ruins are set in a spectacular Norfolk landscape and are well worth seeing.
