Brewood is a small market town in Staffordshire and on the corner of the Market Place stands the curiously named Speedwell Castle. It is actually a very fine Gothic town house of the mid 18th century. It is said that the house was built from the winnings of a racehorse called Speedwell which belonged to the Duke of Bolton. The double tower frontage and the ogival windows and door do give the building a castle like appearance and it is said that the interior boasts a Chippendale staircase in the Chinese manner.
