KEEP OF ORFORD CASTLE

The only prominent building in the Sandlings landscape, the keep has always been a sea-mark and was formerly lit by a brazier. To guard his new port at Orford, Henry II built the castle in the later 12th century. Four centuries later the outer walls began to be quarried for building materials and the keep alone survives.
