Poppyland Publishing is pleased to invite you to the launch on Elaine Murphy’s new book, Wingfield: Suffolk’s Forgotten Castle at the Waveney Heritage Centre at 6.00pm on 4 November 2021.
Wingfield was well known throughout the late medieval and Tudor periods but later declined to become a residence at the heart of a farming estate. But these later centuries are just as important to understanding the story of the building and crucial to understanding the surviving remains. This book is as much about the story of Suffolk and its changing society as it is about the castle itself. The author’s meticulous research gives equal weight to these later centuries, creating for the first time a comprehensive history to shed light on this forgotten Suffolk castle.
Elaine Murphy is a well-known local historian having previously written house histories of other Waveney valley houses, the Grange in Brockdish and Monks Hall in Syleham.
