Thanks for your interest its a good place to visit just to admire the early pre Tudor brick work and the fine views across the fields.
thanks for the L
The Castle moat is still in use by the fishermen and the many ducks, I do believe that the family still used the completed part of the Castle until about c1583/6 I will try and serch the family records.I will ask at the Guildhall.
Thanks for the L.
