“Shortly before closing, three other guides and myself had gathered on the landing waiting to be called down. I found a lady standing on my right, so near that I could see the pores of her skin. She appeared to be listening to us room guides talking, slightly smiling.”

“Her dress was in a dull yellow with a large black check pattern, it was a neat fitting bodice with a little upstanding band around the neck of the same material, covered with a little collar.”

“She seemed to have trouble focusing as she opened and closed her eyes three times. She turned back and forth towards whomever was speaking- again lowering and raising her eyelids slowly.”

“I think she came from the Grey Dressing room, her state of dress with her collar off suggests she was dressing for dinner.”

We believe this photograph to be of of Rachel Anna Ketton, the daughter of John & Rachel Ketton and the Last Squire’s grandmother. Her photograph matches the description in the first hand account from room guides in 1977, of a ghostly woman seen from the grey dressing room and staircase hall.

Have you had any spooky encounters whilst wandering the halls of Felbrigg?

Restoring the River Bure in Norfolk

One of the most significant projects we’re working on currently is the Riverlands restoration of the Scarrowbeck, one of the River Bure’s headwaters, which runs through the Felbrigg Estate. The Bure is one of just over 200 chalk-stream rivers around the world and as such, it’s a precious habitat for fish and endangered species such as the water vole and eel. We’ve been working with our partners, local landowners and tenants to improve water quality and habitats along the river. Our next plans include installing a new pond dipping platform on Felbrigg Lake and we’re hoping to restore the stream below the lake to enhance the area for fish, dragonflies and birds.

One impact of climate change we’ve seen at Felbrigg is severe weather events. This time last year, we were faced with exceptionally high winds that led to significant damage to trees throughout the Felbrigg and Sheringham Park estates and at West Runton – we had to close for several days to clear our paths and make sure it was safe for visitors to return. #greatbiggreenweek #sustainability #climatechange #thetimeisnow

A biomass boiler for Felbrigg

Did you know that for the past few years, Felbrigg Hall has been kept warm using a greener biomass boiler heating system that is fuelled from wood chip, sustainably harvested from the estate? This system replaced five oil fired boilers and now supplies renewable heat and hot water to the shop, kitchens, tea-room, offices, staff apartments and three holiday cottages on the Felbrigg Estate.

Join us for guided morning and afternoon walks across the estate on Saturday 11 September starting at 10.30am & 11am and 1.30pm & 2pm.

We will be heading across Felbrigg’s rolling parkland, woods and lake, learning more about the wildlife and the work of our passionate conservationists to support the ancient trees and restoration of the River Bure.

Your guide will provide insight into the plentiful wildlife that Felbrigg lake supports which also affords brilliant views of the estate. One of only 200 chalk-stream rivers around the world, the River Bure passes through the parkland. Discover why it’s vital for both people and wildlife including the colourful and charismatic dragonflies and damselflies. In the Great Wood, one of Felbrigg’s Sites of Special Scientific Interest, we’ll highlight the beautiful ancient trees which support a host of wildlife including woodpeckers and tawny owls.

This is a free event held in conjunction with Heritage Open Days. Max 20 people per tour/session. Guided walk: 2hrs approx.

Our gardeners are always happy to talk, offer advice and maybe even cuttings, but please do not help yourself to plants as this disrupts all the hard work our garden team do.
