Picton Castle - South Elevation
Picton Castle - South Elevation
The castle was built around 1300 by Sir John Wogan, Justice of Ireland. His descendants, the Philipps family still live here (see Baron Milford). The layout is unusual because there is no internal courtyard. Protection was provided by seven projecting circular towers. The gate and portcullis led directly into the basement under the great hall. Baron Philipps had the west tower demolished in the early 19th century and replaced it with the four-storey rectangular castellated block on this corner.
