The castle at Castle Hedingham in Essex was constructed around 1140. The keep was built by Aubrey de Vere, and is likely to have shared the same architect as that at Rochester Castle in Kent. The exterior stone used for the construction came from Northamptonshire.

Hedingham Castle is a member of the Historic Houses Association.
