Flamborough Castle was originally a medieval fortified manor house, founded by Constable family. In 1351 and 1352, Marmaduke Constable founded the stone castle, when he was granted a licence to crenellate. The earlier clay rampart and ditch, was strengthen by a chalk curtain wall and a small chalk pele tower, with a vaulted basement, added to the complex range of buildings.
