Croft Castle

A building has been on the site from the 11th century and it has, for all this time been the home of the Croft family and Croft baronets. The Croft family were closely linked to their neighbours the Mortimers of Wigmore and later Ludlow. The Battle of Mortimer's Cross took place on Croft lands nearby in 1461. The present building originated as a castle in the 14th century and has been much altered since. The Castle was restored after slighting in the Civil War. It now consists of a stone quadrangular manor house with a small castellated round tower at each corner and a small square tower flanking the north side. The castle is under the care of the National Trust and members of the Croft family still live within it.

Chirk Castle

The Castle is set in 480 acres of parkland, once part of a vast medieval deer park. It is notable for the sunken ditches or ‘ha-has’ installed to stop the deer from entering the formal gardens but avoiding using fences so as not to spoil the view from the castle. The property is well known for its gardens, with clipped yew hedges, herbaceous borders, rock gardens and terraces and surrounded by 18th century parkland. Offa's Dyke passes within some 200 yards of the castle.
