Looking at Churches visit to Castle Rising on 9 September
Twenty-five members of NNU3A Visiting Churches Group spent the day at Castle Rising on 9 September. This was the final visit of the year for the Group, and it was good to see so many members coming together to enjoy this beautiful summer day. The visit covered Castle Rising Castle and the Church of St Lawrence, the medieval hospital alms-houses and the remains of the early Norman port which is believed to have existed here before the land was reclaimed from the sea. There were excellent local guides whose knowledge of the part that Castle Rising has played in English royal and political history made this a valuable and enjoyable learning experience. Built in 1140 by an ambitious Anglo-Norman nobleman, it is unclear if it ever had a defensive purpose or if it was really built in order to impress other nobles of its owner’s wealth and power. Famously, the castle was home in 1330- 1350 to Queen Isabella, the mother of King Edward III. By 1544 it had been transferred to Henry VIII who gave it that year to Thomas Howard, the Duke of Norfolk, in exchange for other lands. The castle and village are still today owned by the Howard family. In keeping with their own local tradition, Group members supported the local economy by lunching in the village tea rooms or the Black Horse Pub. John Bird, the Group Contact and inspiration for its programme of visits, was thanked by Group members for his work for NNU3A.
