Mitford Castle

  • Description

    "Built as a motte and bailey castle sometime between the Conquest and 1100 AD, much of the castle was destroyed in the C14. It was subsequently rebuilt, only to be confiscated by Henry III, pillaged by Robert the Bruce, and in the C17 it was destroyed during a Civil War siege. It had the only 5 sided keep in England."
