Back in the 12th century, it was very common for people with power and money to have castles built for their families. The castle was constructed way back in the 12 Century, and as you could imagine, today it doesn’t look like theÂ palatial estate it once was. The castle received an incredible renovation courtesy of aÂ building preservation charity called LandmarkÂ Trust.
