I decided to head out on the bicycle for an afternoon jaunt all around the picturesque Colne Valley in North Essex, determining en-route to visit Hedingham Castle… somewhere I have never ever been ahead of. Hedingham Castle is positioned in the village of Castle Hedingham on the North Essex/ Suffolk border and was developed circa 1140 by Aubrey De Vere. It really is 110 foot high Preserve is acknowledged as a single of the greatest examples of a Norman medieval Castle in Britain. The Maintain is distribute about 4 floors accessed by stone spiral staircases with a big Banqueting Hall on the initial floor spanned by a 28 foot arch, one particular of largest Norman arches in England. The day of my go to Hedingham Castle was holding an “Italian Super Cars” occasion, with an array of high octane super autos (really worth a number of thousands and thousands I’d picture) on show all close to the grounds of The Maintain. I have to confess, as a lot more of a two wheeled petrol head, I was a lot more interested in attempting to get a number of shots of the Preserve than photographing the autos!
