Thetford Warren Lodge was probably built around 1400 by the Prior of Thetford; this defensible lodge protected gamekeepers and hunting parties against armed poachers. Much later used by the local ‘warreners’ who harvested rabbits here.
Please note: Dogs on leads are welcome.
Two audio clips exploring the history of warrening are available to download.
