Orford Castle, Suffolk. The Keep was built to a highly innovative design as an 18-sided drum. Both exterior and interior constructed between 1165 and 1173 survive almost intact, allowing visitors to explore the basement with its vital well, and the lower and upper halls - the latter the principal room of the castle. Round these polygonal rooms is a maze of passages, leading to the chapel, kitchen and other chambers in the turrets. Date: circa 2000
