Support Oxburgh's Roof appeal

Oxburgh Hall's roof is in need of urgent repair. Our roof tiles, timbers and brickwork are showing signs of aging; we’re not surprised, they’re well over 500 years old. We need your help now, as we launch this ambitious project.

Story of survival

For over 500 years, Oxburgh and the Bedingfeld family have seen many ups and downs. Their Catholic faith saw them ostracised and persecuted and the Hall was partially burnt down by Parliamentarian troops who seized the estate during the Civil War. However, Oxburgh has endured. Now we need your help to continue its story of survival.

" Oxburgh needs saving. We need to safeguard those captivating glimpses of the house and its reflections in the moat, as well as the history of those that have walked before us. The survival of this magical building is now down to us, but we can't do it alone!"
- Paul Coleman, Project Manager

Defiantly enduring the test of time

Many of the features that make Oxburgh special were added in the 19th century. From the ornate chimneys and windows, to the lavish interiors, gardens and woodland - all were the vision of the 6th Baronet, Henry Bedingfeld and his wife, Margaret Paston.
