History Of Whittington Castle
The fabric of the Castle has been much changed over the hundreds of years since it was built, one of those changes being the 16th-century Elizabethan dwelling attached to the northern outer bailey gate-house tower.
The tower keep is the 12th century but has been later modified; the outer gatehouse is undoubtedly the work of Sir Fulk Fitzwarine of the early 13th century, and above the archway, his coat of arms can be seen.
Looking at the remains of this once extensive Marches Castle, one wonders why this particular site was chosen. In most cases, castles had natural defensive features to prevent easy access for attacking forces, such as a river, cliffs, or deep moat. The highest land in the village, Pen-y-Bryn, would have given excellent views towards Offa's Dyke, over which the Welsh raiders frequently invaded English territory. It was protection provided by the treacherous marshlands surrounding the site, which was the decisive factor in its choice for the first earthworks and wooden Castle.
William Peverel built the Norman Motte and Bailey castle after demolition of the previous stronghold built at King Offa, probably of wood with a fence of short posts.
William Peverel had no male heir, so his eldest daughter Mellet inherited the castle. The victor of a tournament for her hand in marriage was Warin de Metz of Lorraine, who founded a long line of Fitzwarines. They held the castle until 1420.
Much of the remains of the keep date from a rebuilding in 1222. The outer gatehouse with two towers had a 42-foot-long drawbridge leading to the drier land to the east.
It was loyal to the Royalists during the civil war until Oliver Cromwell's Roundheads took it by force in 1643. At Queen Mary II, ownership of the castle was granted to Fitz-Alan, Earl of Arundel. Later it was sold to Francis William Albany Esq, a London merchant whose Manor and Estate was Fernhill. When his granddaughter Sarah married Thomas Lloyd Esq of Aston, the two estates were united.
So to the last joint owners, Mrs A Hamilton-Hill and the Lady Newborough of the Lloyd lineage. The Castle is now owned and run by the local community.
