OXBOROUGH Oxborough is a rural mid-Norfolk village, 17 miles from King's Lynn. It's famous for its church, St. John's, and the manor house Oxburgh Hall, ancestral home of the Bedingfeld family, now owned by the National Trust. In 1948, the tower and spire of St. Johns collapsed onto the church destroying the south side of the nave. The south chapel contains a rare undamaged terracotta tomb, which is unique in England, and evidence of the Catholicism of the Bedingfeld family. Oxburgh Hall was built in 1482 by the Bedingfield family, who still live there. It was built as castles were beginning to fall out of fashion, and the king - unusually - gave permission for castellation. The building is fortified with a moat. It is open to the public as it is now owned by the National Trust. The village has a pub named after the Bedingfield family The Bedingfield Arms. King's Lynn is a busy town with a wide range of shops. It also has hourly trains to London King's Cross via Cambridge.
