Near Great Yarmouth lies an old Roman fort where nearly 2000 years ago Roman troops garrisoned and now we can still walk the same paths as they did. The late 3rd century 'Saxon Shore' fort at Burgh Castle was built as part of the Roman network of coastal defences, and probably abandoned just over a hundred years later. Three of its imposing stone walls survive, almost to their original height, making this one of the best preserved Roman monuments in Britain. The fourth wall collapsed into the surrounding marshes a long time ago. The land around the fort is a wildlife haven and offers panoramic views over Breydon Water.
Somerleyton Hall & Gardens
As we leave the fort we bear South following Angles way where we visit Somerleyton estate. A stunning estate with picturesque Gardens (with a Maze inside) and see a bit more modern history
