SIZERGH CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

The earliest remains are of a 14th-century manor house which had a ground-floor hall, a crenellated four-storey solar tower, and a service block. This building was radically altered in the late 1550s and early 1560s by Walter Strickland. The solar tower was remodelled; a new hall with attics was built, the service block was rebuilt as a three-storey lower end tower with associated garderobe wing, and two long wings, the south wing with a long gallery over lodgings, the north wing with a kitchen, service rooms and accommodation for upper servants were all added. The fitting out of the interior continued after Walter's death in 1569. This later work included the Inlaid Chamber. Alterations were made throughout the eighteenth century to the circulation pattern of the house as well as to its fittings, as they were in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
