    Blickling Hall
    Blickling was inherited by Sir Thomas Boleyn, whose daughter Anne became Henry VIII's second wife in 1533.

    This impressive English country house, began life as a manor house. In the 11th century it was owned by Harold Godwinson (later to become the King of England).

    The name Blickling was originally believed to derive from the Old English word 'Bekeling' meaning water-meadow but more recently it is thought to indicate the settlement of the family or followers of one Blicla. Blickling has been the site of a manor house since long before Sir Henry Hobart built the mansion which can be seen today.
