Beeston Castle

Beeston Castle is a former Royal castle. It was built in the early thirteenth century and it was kept in good repair until the 16th century, when it was considered to be of no further military use, although it was pressed into service during the English Civil War. The castle was partly demolished in 1646, on the orders of Oliver Cromwell, to prevent its further use as a stronghold..

A lodge house, with circular towers either side of a central archway was built in the 19th century, and is now the visitor centre.

The castle is a Grade I listed building, and the lodge is Grade II listed
