Burstwick Castle
Burstwick Castle
Earthworks (particularly those showing the course of the moat) are pretty much all that remains of Burstwick Hall Garth, or 'Burstwick Castle'. The fortified manor was a 13th century royal residence built largely of timber and consisting of a hall, one or possibly two chapels, chambers, kitchen and stable. Different sources have the moat being added in either 1291 or 1334.

The manor's most famous (if reluctant) resident was Elizabeth de Burgh, Queen of Scots and wife of Robert the Bruce who was imprisoned here before being moved to Bisham Abbey Manor, Berkshire in 1308.
