Codnor Castle remains, Castle Lane, Aldercar and Langley Mill - Amber Valley

Castle ruins and earthworks dating to the early C13 and later. Formerly affected by open-cast coal mining operations nearby. A major repair programme was completed in 2008. The Codnor Castle Heritage Trust is carrying out maintenance works and running public events with the landowner's permission. The Lower Court east wall is in danger of collapse and has been temporarily supported. Development proposals and the long term management of the site have yet to be fully resolved. However, the Trust has been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to explore options for both castle and farmhouse.
