The view of Framlingham castleís magnificent walls seen from beyond Framlingham Mere is one to rival the chateaux of the Loire, but on a more homely level there is much to see within this delightful Suffolk market town. The castle was built in the late 12th century on what is more a modest bump in the landscape than a hill, replacing the fortification destroyed by Henry II in 1174. In its day Framlingham Castle was cutting edge military design (!), the curtain walls extending the defensible area beyond the usual keep, and it was probably based on castles seen during the crusades. Made from Northamptonshire oolite limestone barged up the Ore, the castle also demonstrated the wealth of its founders, the Bigod family, original Earls of Norfolk. The Howards replaced the treacherous Bigods, and there are tremendous 16th century tombs in St Michaelís church for that anti-Tudor line. Henry VIII seized the castle, and Elizabeth I imprisoned Catholic priests there. St Michaelís, started in 1350, is also worth visiting to see the 17th century Thomas Thamar organ, one of only three extant. Also noteworthy are the almshouses in the settlement, some using stones from the demolished inner buildings of the castle, and the redbrick Victorian Gothic Framlingham College. Framlingham is a pretty place, the walk down the little hill from the castle, past (or via) the church and Crown and Anchor pub, takes in pink-washed cottages and the three sided market place. How wonderfully British that the town sign for such a grand and historic place should feature two post boxes, as Framlingham boasts the two oldest working examples in England, dating from 1856.
