• About

    North Elmham Chapel, also known as North Elmham Bishops Castle and North Elmham Bishops Chapel, is a castle ruin in the village of North Elmham.

    The structure started out as a cathedral in the 11th century. In 1387 Henry le Despenser, Bishop of Norwich, obtained license to crenellate the church. He then fortified the structure into a double-moated castle. The castle fell into disrepair during the 16th century, and by the 19th century nothing was visible above ground. The site has been excavated and you can now see earthworks and ruins. Remains of a kitchen hearth, arches, cathedral towers, and walls are all visible.
