KETT'S REBELLION

Then and Now - Kett's Oak

 In 1549  John Flowerdew, a Hethersett landowner enclosed his land and was partly responsible for causing Kett's Rebellion. 

Men from Wymondham and probably Hethersett marched on Norwich after mustering under the shade of an old oak tree just inside the Hethersett boundary and as depicted in the drawing above. 

An oak, called Kett's Oak stands by that spot.  The pictures illustrate the tree over the last 200 years from the earliest above to the one below which was taken during the 1967 restoration by Norfolk County Council and the colour photograph of the tree as it is today.
