Warwick Castle

Warwick Castle

Warwick castle is one of the finest examples of a medieval castle in England.  Originally built by the first Norman King, William I (William the Conqueror), in 1068, as a ‘motte and bailey’ castle, it was re-built in stone in the twelfth century and re-fortified during the Hundred Years War in the fourteenth century.  The ramparts facing the town of Warwick, overlooking the river Avon, are a splendid example of the military architecture of the time.   Its use as a military stronghold persisted until the early seventeenth century.
