HARTLEBURY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Bishop's palace begun about 1255 and granted a licence crenellate in 1268. Most of the present building is 15th century in date, with late 17th and mid to late 18th century extensions, remodelled in the 1960s. The moat has been mutilated by landscaping, with only the west arm surviving intact. The site was captured in 1646 and the buildings largely demolished. Rebuilding work began in the late 17th century. The present house is U-shaped in plan, built of sandstone ashlar and brick with slate and tile roofs.
