Urishay Castle, Peterchurch - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Remains of C12 motte castle, a ruined C17 house and a partly ruined C16 chapel. The chapel is stable and in good condition, but the C17 house is without a roof and the masonry is disintegrating as a result. Lintels are also failing and in danger of collapse. An assessment of the structure to establish the survival of medieval fabric and development of a strategy are required.
