The castle at Hopton Castle
View westwards from the Bedstone lane. Hopton Castle was probably built during the reign of King Stephen in the 12th century and has an interesting history. The castle is not open to the public and is clearly in a poor state of repair. However, the Hopton Castle Preservation Trust, with help from the National Lottery and other sources, aims to make the structure safe and open it to the public.
