Ruins at Bletchingley Castle, Bletchingley - Tandridge

Norman ringwork and bailey, with the remains of a rare stone built Norman house. Some trees are growing too close to the fragile masonry of the house which is overgrown with vegetation and in need of consolidation. The condition of the ruins of the house are what put the site at risk. The ruins were previously excavated. It is hoped that a project can be developed to see to see the ruins conserved.
