BRAMPTON BRYAN CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A late 13th or early 14th century castle, constructed of sandstone rubble and ashlar, with 16th and 17th additions to hall range. Beseiged in 1643 and 1644 by the Royalists and taken on the second occasion. Subsequently ruined. The gatehouse and twin towers of the barbican survive. There is also a mutilated mound which may be the remains of an earlier motte and bailey. A view by Buck in 1731 shows little more standing than at present. The castle is scheduled and the hall and castle listed separately.
