September 2016 - Feb 2017 Update
Oxburgh Hall remains closed but repairs to the Dormer Window are under way.  Scaffolding is due to be erected during the last week of September but the house and court yard still remains closed. The gardens, walks, pantry and activities are still open to the public.
                     Certain areas of Oxburgh Hall are closed to visitors until further notice.
Following the collapse of a dormer window from the roof of the West Wing at Oxburgh Hall which has led to damage to this part of the building and inner courtyard the decision has been made by the NT to close the Courtyard area to visitors – only a very restricted area will be accessible to National Trust staff.

This means that the showrooms, gift shop, tearoom, courtyard loos and second-hand bookshop will be closed until further notice.

The NT have been busy making the building wind and watertight, and engineers have been onsite inspecting the damage.

The plan is to now erect scaffolding, to allow NT experts closer inspection of the roofline and to then plan the full extent of the repairs required.

The grounds will remain open, as will the Chapel and the pantry. The hall has set up tables in one of the marquees on the lawn and stocked it with a selection of books from the second-hand bookshop.

NT says they hope to re-open as soon as they can, but only when it’s safe to do so. In the meantime, visitors are welcome to come and enjoy the grounds.

                           Holiday Cottage opens!

Chapel Lodge, on the Oxburgh Hall estate, has now officially opened as a
National Trust holiday cottage.
