Welcome to Whittington Castle near Oswestry in Shropshire England. The strikingly picturesque and romantic ruins are steeped in much history, tales of bitter border warfare, romance and legend.
A small rural community in North Shropshire, England has acquired a 99 year lease to manage the Castle that sits in the centre of its village. The Trust is delighted to announce that a £1.5m project to repair and restore Whittington Castle has just been completed with the assistance of a £950k grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
We believe ours is the only Castle in the UK which is owned and run by a local community.
The existing Castle is set in about 12 acres of ground and is the remains of a Norman home.
We welcome visitors all year and hope that you enjoy your visit to our Castle.
