Long Description:
The castle was built in the 15th century by Ralph, 3rd Lord Cromwell, Lord Treasurer of England, on the site of a previous 13th century stone castle, of which some remains can still be seen. Of Lord Cromwell’s castle, the keep and moat still remain. It is thought that the castle's three state rooms were once splendidly fitted out and the chambers were heated by immense gothic fireplaces with decorated chimney pieces and tapestries. It has been said that the castle was, in fact, an early domestic country mansion masquerading as a fortress. After Cromwell's death in 1456 the castle fell into neglect until 1911 when it was purchased and restored by Lord Curzon of Kedleston, who left it to the National Trust on his death in 1925. Lord Curzon had undertaken restorations on it between 1911 and 1914.
