I have wanted to explore Oxburgh Hall for years and at last the day arrived! It was a lovely bright morning, although cold. We were greeted on the bridge by a very well informed guide who gave us a short overview of the hall and it's history and why not all the contents are original is because some of the hall was destroyed and the other parts have been added to during the Victorian era whilst the family have, and still do, live there. Each of the rooms that are open to the public have a very knowledgeable volunteer guide to answer any questions you might have and most of the rooms do in fact have artefacts appropriate for the building's history. I was fascinated with all the layers of wall paper discovered from various era's and the priest hole was a great find. Also the more able were invited to a roof top view of the grounds which was very impressive. We went into the chapel which was a later addition to the estate after the original catholic chapel only yards from the Hall had been destroyed. We were fortunate enough to see the amazing triptych which will now be closed for the six weeks of lent. We also enjoyed a scone and cuppa served by very friendly staff before walking across the car park and viewing the spectacular terracotta screens that survived the destruction of the original chapel.
