Barnwell Castle - 6 Well Lane, Barnwell, Northamptonshire PE8 5PS Grade 1 listed building and scheduled monument - English Heritage Building ID: 232573 The castle is privately owned and access is not permitted. Monument listing - Formal gardens to Barnwell Castle, laid out from 1913 to the 1920s by Horace Czarnikov, incorporating a raised walk constructed circa 1613 by Thomas Drew. Castle Listing: Castle. Built about 1266 by Berenger Le Moyne; some building work may have taken place within the castle during C16:- In 1568, Sir Edward Montagu founded a Tudor manor house, in the outer court and demolished all the buildings within the courtyard. Entrance front, to east, has gate-house, to far left of curtain wall, with flanking semi-circular towers. The towers and curtain walls were originally probably higher and would have had a castellated parapet. The building date of 1266 is derived from a Jury statement of 1276 which records that Berenger Le Moyne had built a castle 10 years earlier. The castle was probably used as a farmyard during C18 and C19 with access through the break in the west curtain wall.
