CAVERSWALL CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

House, built into the remains of a 13th century castle, granted a licence to crenellate in 1275. The remains comprise a roughly oblong enclosure with four polygonal angle towers, which, with the walls, do not stand to full height. A gatehouse on the east side leads on to a bridge across the moat. The house was built into the castle circa 1615 and was extended and altered circa 1890. The moat has been landscaped to form an ornamental feature.
