RED CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A castle built by Henry de Audley first documented in 1227, it comprises the vestiges of a three bailey complex with perimeter stone walls and circular towers, a tall stone keep and rock-cut ditch. Probably disused by 1400. Much of the medieval fabric was 'restored' in the 18th century with the addition of follies. A Bronze Age hoard has also been found on the site along with Roman, Saxon and medieval finds (See SJ 52 NE 3).
