After a busy week and having one of my photos of Horsey Mere being featured on the National Trust East of England web page as ‘photo of the month’, I thought I would use my membership and take a trip to Felbrigg Hall.
Felbrigg Hall is located within the Felbrigg Estate near to Cromer and is maintained and operated by the National Trust. The unaltered hall dates back to the 17th-century and is known for its Jacobean architecture and Georgian interior.
The estate that the hall resides in has some 520 acres of woodland with plenty of wildlife to be found. Within the woodland you can find ‘The Victory V’ plantation.
Planted by Robert Wyndham Ketton-Cremer (the late Squire) in 1946, the purpose of the plantation was to commemorate Victory in Europe Day (also known as V Day) and the death of his brother Richard, who was killed during the Second World War whilst serving in RAF in Crete during the 1940s.
