A manor house fortified in 1219 with keep and towers by a Norman motte. The twin towered gatehouse remains, but much of the stone was removed after the castle was slighted in the Civil War.

The castle is being preserved by the Whittington Castle Preservation Trust - see link below - help them if you can.
