A view of Swinburne Castle
A view of Swinburne Castle
The original castle, dating in part from the 14th century fell into disrepair many centuries ago. The main house standing in the middle of an extensive estate is surprisingly recent, dating from 1998. It stands on the site of an 18th century house which was demolished in 1960 because the owners could not sustain the cost of maintenance. The single storey building to the right is the 18th century orangery (Grade II listed).
