English: Blickling Hall (1616) is a stately home in the village of Blickling in Norfolk, England.
  • Originally, Blickling Hall was built as a manor house. In the 11th century the house was owned by Harold Godwinson, who later became the King of England. William I passed the property on to his chaplain and by 1091 it had become a country palace of the bishops.
  • During the late 14th century it was owned by Sir Nicholas Dagworth, who built a rectangular house surrounded by a moat. At the end of the 15th century, Blickling Hall was owned by the Boleyn family and, according to tradition, Anne Boleyn was born here.
  • Sir Henry Hobart purchased the estate in 1616. His descendants lived at Blickling Hall until 1940. The estate is now in the care of the National Trust.
  • The garden at Blickling Hall was started in the 17th century by Sir Henry Hobart, who began building the house, as it presently stands, in 1619. His successors built on Sir Henry's design by creating new extensions, and by redesigning existing sections; nothing remains of the original formal garden.
