Bothal Castle
Bothal Castle
The castle dates from the C14 when a licence to crenellate was granted to Sir Robert Bertram in 1343. It is assumed that he then built the gatehouse probably on the site of a former Norman motte. The castle was incorporated into a house that was built in the 1840s, occupying the position once taken by two towers. The gate tower and fragments of curtain wall are medieval, a good deal of which survives. The rest of the castle was built within the last sixty years and is used as a private residence and offices by the agent of the Duke of Portland forming part of the Welbeck estate.
