Queen Eleanor's Palace, Harby
Queen Eleanor's Palace, Harby
The name is as shown on OS maps, but in practice this was simply the local manor belonging to Richard de Weston where Queen Eleanor of Castile was staying at the time of her death in 1290.
The site contains the remains of a moated manor, relatively undisturbed, of the period 1250-1350, and is a scheduled monument. Although the listing does not include the churchyard, there is evidence for medieval building with the churchyard, with some masonry being unearthed when graves are dug.
