The Bennet family lived at Rougham Hall during the 19th cent. Philip Bennet was reputedly the last family member to own the house which was of Gothic and Elizabeathan styles. Capt Geoffrey Bennet (winning jockey of the 1923 Grand National riding on Sgt Murphy) was born at Rougham Hall. Sadly the house was the victim of a stray German bomb in WW2 that was probably intended for the nearby airfield. The 2000lb bomb exploded in the courtyard, destroying the foundations of the property. Chimneys fell through the roof, walls fell down and the place has since been left in ruins.
