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. Some on-going vegetation impacts. The Harold Lapworth Charitable Trust has undertaken consolidation works on the enclosure wall, vegetation management and good steps to reduce vandalism, anti-social behaviour and theft. Further vegetation works are needed and repair and consolidation of the C16 remains. Historic England are liaising with the landowners regarding these works and the on-going maintenance of the site.
