Bungay Castle

Bungay Castle (pictured above) was a Norman fortification built by Roger Bigod, circa 1100. Over the centuries it fell into ruin and is now a Grade I listed building. It is purportedly haunted by the Black Shuck, a terrifying hound believed to be the spirit of Hugh Bigod, 1st Earl of Norfolk (1095–1177).
