Brimpsfield Castle
Brimpsfield Castle is in the village of Brimpsfield in the county of Gloucestershire.

the first castle was probably built after the Norman invasion. Then, in the 12th or 13th century, it was rebuilt in stone. The owner, John Giffard, 2nd Lord of Brimpsfield, rebelled against King Edward II and was executed in 1322. The castle was then destroyed.

Today the remains consist of a mound with an outer bank and ditch and the foundations of a gatehouse.
