Description

Castle Rising, Norfolk

Castle Rising Castle is a massive stone ringwork and bailey fortress, founded by William de Albini. The impressive Norman hall-keep and handsome forebuilding, stands almost concealed within the formidable bank and ditch of the central oval enclosure. To the east, a small square gatehouse is set in the bank with a fragment of the 14th century brick curtain wall to one side. A rectangular enclosure strongly banked and ditched guards the gatehouse and to the west there is a smaller flanking enclosure. Also in the inner enclosure, are the foundations of an 11th century Norman chapel, hard against the huge defensive earthworks.
