LEA CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of a tower keep castle at Lower Lea, probably built in the late 13th or early 14th century and partly demolished in 1645. A farmhouse, of 17th or 18th century date, stands immediately to the south of the keep. This house was extended in the mid 19th century and contains a wooden panel inscribed with a date of 1560. A 19th century cartshed and granary abut the tower keep to the north. Three walls of the keep survive, standing to a maximum height of 9 metres. It is a three storey structure, with a first floor hall, built of limestone rubble.
