  • Special visit to Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk

                                    Friday 13 June 2014

                       Oxburgh Hall, Oxborough, Norfolk PE33 9PS

    Oxburgh Hall  is a Grade 1 listed, 15th Century Moated Manor House,  situated a few miles south of Downham Market, Norfolk.

    The family seat of the Bedingfelds since it was built in 1482, Oxburgh Hall has been owned and managed by the National Trust since 1952. A  remarkable collection of more than 120 wallpapers dating from the mid–‐ 8th  to the mid 20th century  was saved by the family.

    WHS member, Wendy Andrews, with  conservator Allyson McDermott, has been investigating the papers and the results are being made available to visitors  via a series of exhibitions. Peeling back the layers is the first of these and this visit provides members with an opportunity to have a private tour of the Hall and to both view and explore the origins of the wallpapers together with Wendy and other wallpaper experts.

    We are extremely lucky to be able to have a private visit to a National Trust property. This is a special event and certainly not one to be missed.
