06.02.17 - Somerton Castle

This old building is hidden away in the Lincolnshire countryside to the south of Lincoln. It was built in 1281 as a traditional castle an has a long and varied history. Medieval kings stayed here, a French king was a prisoner here, but it fell into disrepair and much of the original building has now disappeared under later work. It is now a private farm, but you can still see some original features, including defensive earthworks and the moat to the left.
