Castle Rising Castle - Flag - coat of arms

This is the ruins of Castle Rising Castle, near the village of Castle Rising.

 

When we got to the car park, I noticed a school party. So as soon as we paid and got in, I went all the way around taking pictures of the castle. By the time I completed one lap of the castle mound above, the secondary school kids started to come in. So I went out, had a little look at the village and road then back in.

 

Weren't here for long but at least I got my photos of the castle. I missed going inside it, but then those students were probably inside doing school work or something.

 

It is north of King's Lynn, and south of Sandringham.

Castle Rising Castle is a ruined castle situated in the village of Castle Rising in the English county of Norfolk. It was built in about 1138 by William d'Aubigny, 1st Earl of Arundel, who also owned Arundel Castle. Much of its square keep, surrounded by a defensive mount, is intact. It is currently owned by Lord Howard of Rising, a descendant of William d'Aubigny.
