Castle Count part 2

This is Norwich castle, a Norman keep heavily restored in the 20th century.
It now houses an arts museum.
I didn't technically go in this one, but there's nothing original inside to see.

Inspired by the royal castle at Norwich is this twelfth-century keep at Castle Rising.
This was a fun keep to explore, partly ruined, partly intact.

Also in Norfolk was Castle Acre, in a pretty ruinous state, though the earthworks (like the ones flanking this gatehouse) were really cool and apparently some of the best preserved earthworks in England.
