Hadleigh Country Park, Hadleigh, SS7 2PP
“The romantic ruins of a royal castle overlooking the Essex marshes. Begun in about 1215 and extensively refortified by Edward III during the Hundred Years War.” An English Heritage property but there is no charge for entry, as you can walk around the towers in the middle of Hadleigh Park.
