INCE CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

Rectangular brick building of two storeys with a projecting four storey tower at each corner. The main entrance is at first floor level, approached by a long flight of steps. Documentary evidence suggests that the house was built in 1653 but it appears earlier in style, more characteristic of a building of the 1620s or 1630s. If it was built in the early 17th century, the house may have been held against the Parliamentarians in 1646, before being captured. Alterations carried out during the 18th century include the remodelling of the tower roofs. The house was leased as a farmhouse between 1884 and 1920 and was restored in 1920-22 and again between 1937 and 1960.
