Bessingham Manor

A borrowed car and a loose plan on a trip into the Norfolk country side to look for a gem of a disused manor house.

Following driving around a couple of small villages, turning many corners and racing down country lanes we found what we’d been looking for.

A house has been on the Bessingham site since the 18th century, with history allegedly including fires and theft. In a dilapidated state, the former manor house sits in an uninspiring state from the outside.

The inside of the house offer many interesting rooms and objects that have long been left behind. From the interesting yellow furniture to the almost psychedelic wall paper on the first floor. IMG_2054 IMG_2063
