MAXSTOKE CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Fortified manor house or castle, built circa 1345, and partly remodelled by the Earl of Stafford a century later. The surviving remains consist of a restored medieval gatehouse, curtain wall and four octagonal angle towers. A range of buildings lines the inside of the western curtain wall, including the 15th century great hall and a kitchen range. The brick block at the northern was added circa 1820. The north west range is timber framed and dates from the 16th century. The surrounding moat is water filled. The entrance bridge crosses the east arm to the gatehouse.
