Hedingham Castle

Responsive Website Development

About this project

Working in collaboration with MacDonald Orr Design, a graphic design company based in the Scottish Highlands, we developed a brand new website for long-standing client Hedingham Castle. Launched in 2018, this is the second digital presence we’ve created for this historic destination.

With traditional botanical illustrations taken directly from the Hedingham Castle archives, the design is a nod to the castle’s rich heritage. Simple in terms of design and structure, it utilises old and new imagery to communicate the beauty of the surroundings and vibrant story of the castle and grounds.

The client was keen to maintain the website on an easy-to-use system, one that was familiar to them and that could be used by other staff members. In order to support this request and all of their development needs, we opted for the WordPress platform, which has been fully customised to support an integrated third-party ticketing application, events calendar and history timeline.


The quality of the work and attention to detail have been outstanding.

The new site transcends what we even hoped for, let alone imagined, and the team have been a joy to work with; efficient, patient and resourceful. In all, you define the way these things should be done.

— Simon Orr, Operations Director
