Orford Castle

Kings and knights trod these passages!

Constructed between 1165 and 1173 by Henry II, this castle has performed its role of a defense against invasion even in the 20th century. During WW2 there was a big gun aimed out over the English Channel in case of Nazi assault by sea. Fortunately for us, it is available to spend a couple of hours touring and absorbing history.
