EMAS Field trip to Framlingham and Orford Castles


Saturday, 16th May 2015

Apart from being set in stunning locations, Framlingham and Orford Castles are particularly interesting because of their defensive positions and the innovations they display in castle construction.

At Framlingham little remains of the first early 12th century castle, as it was virtually dismantled by order of King Henry II.  In the late 12th century the castle was reconstructed in the latest concentric style from Europe and originally the Holy Land.  It consisted of a curtain wall and thirteen towers.  Later alterations and additions were made by the Norfolk family in the Tudor period, resulting in the unusual sight of amazing Tudor chimneys on top of the 12th century towers that one sees today.
