Hartshill Castle, Castle Road, Hartshill - North Warwickshire

Motte and bailey castle, converted C14 enclosure castle with remains of C16 farmhouse. Upstanding remains have decayed due to erosion, structural problems and vandalism. A Trust was established and over the past five years it has undertaken a series of consolidation works on the enclosure wall, vegetation clearance/management and steps to reduce vandalism, anti-social behaviour and theft. Several areas are still in need of repair and consolidation, including the C16 remains. Works have been proposed and discussions are ongoing with the Trust as to the specification for these repairs.
