Before You Go

The ruins of a substantial early medieval moated manor house, built in local flint.

Before You Go

Parking: There is a small lay-by next to the castle entrance and just in front of the village church.

Access: There are a four steps up to the path to the castle entrance from the lay-by, and then two gates, one of which is a kissing gate.

Facilities: There are no facilities at the castle but it is on the edge Weeting village so there are shops and places to eat nearby.

Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome.

Plan a Great Day Out

Why not travel on to the fascinating Grime's Graves, four miles to the northeast and the only Neolithic flint mine open to visitors in Britain?

Or eight miles to the southeast of the castle is the town of Thetford where you can visit Thetford Priory, the burial site of the earls and dukes of Norfolk for nearly 400 years. And then within a stone's throw of the priory is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the only surviving remains of a priory of the Canons of the Holy Sepulchre in England.
