Castles

Cessnock Castle

Description:
The tower house at Cessnock dates from a very early period, perhaps even from the late 13th century, but some alterations were made in the 16th century. The 17th century saw further additions such as the circular stair-tower and the octagonal tower. Restored between 1890 and 1900 for the Duke of Portland, the castle was bought in 1945 by Baron de Fresnes and is now in private residential use.
