Introduction

Heveningham Hall was once visited by Queen Elizabeth I who was then entertained by Lord Hunsdon and was said to have shot a buck with her own hand under the "Queen's Oak" (once measured 11 yards in circumference). The hall was built in the late 18th century for Gerard Venneck. As well as the attractive hall itself, the grounds also include a stunning early 19th century thatched icehouse (close to the road between Huntingfield and Heveningham village) which can be seen in our gallery.

The village was recorded in Domesday as "Heueniggeham" or "Evelincham" and appears on John Speed's 1610 map as "Heueningham".

The village name is generally pronounced locally as "Henningum".
