Photographer's Note

Readers may be excused if they felt I had misspelt the title.. but No.. Orford It is and Orford it has been since the middle ages.. in fact ever since King Henry the 2nd Built it.. It dominates the town of Orford and surrounding area providing protection against invading armies.. Today only the Keep exists, as the walls were destroyed (for more homely buildings) once England became a lesser warlike nation (well on their own soils) and thus less need for defences..## Today its managed by the English Heritage- It houses a unique museum of local atrifacts from coins predating the Romans to important artifacts from World War 11..
