TITCHMARSH CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Manor house owned by Sir John Lovel. In 1304 a licence was obtained to crenellate the house, and by 1346-7 it was moated and enclosed by a stone wall. It was in ruins by 1363. Excavations in 1887 revealed remains of buildings of apparently two phases, it being suggested that the earliest buildings had been surrounded by a near circular wall and that these were demolished in the early 14th century and replaced with the manor house and present moat.
