|Type of record:||Building|
|Name:||Remains of a medieval castle at Dilham Hall|
A 19th century hall, close to which stands a 15th century flint and brick tower with a stretch of wall, the remains of Dilham Castle. The tower probably is one side of the castle's gatehouse. In 2003, during building works to the hall, a medieval undercroft was discovered beneath it. This almost certainly was part of the original castle, but was filled with post medieval building rubble, indicating that there was a further building on the site after the medieval castle but before the present hall.
There are ecclesiastical stone features in the grounds, said to come from the parish church, but probably from elsewhere.
