Wattlesborough Castle (uninhabited parts), Alberbury with Cardeston - Shropshire (UA)

Remains of a large square tower of the castle, now without a roof. Probably late C13 for Sir Robert Corbet. The wall heads are particularly vulnerable; some blocks of masonry have fallen from high level. The owner is considering consolidation and re-roofing for domestic use.
