5th July. Hindringham Hall Tour & Tea
Hindringham Hall is a moated manor house with beautiful gardens and medieval fish ponds. The current house, on the site of an earlier house, was built by Martin Hastings in the 16th century, and there are some 19 th century additions. The moat and fish ponds date from the 12th century. Although the gardens are open to the public at certain times from March to October, house and garden tours, given by the owners, Charles and Linda Tucker, are only available on three afternoons in the summer. We have booked a private tour for members on one of those days. We will be alternating between the garden and house with another group. Arrive at 2pm for 2.30.
