Tattershall Castle was built in the 15th century to impress and dominate by Ralph Cromwell, one of the most powerful men in England. The castle is a dramatic red brick tower with a superb fortified tower, elaborate brick vaulting and stone fireplaces, double moat and breathtaking views. It is a masterpiece of medieval brick architecture.
The castle rises 33.5 metres above the Lincolnshire countryside and has walls 4.5 metres thick at battlement level. There are four floors, with a roof-top courtyard and battlement walkway providing magnificent views with Boston Stump and Lincoln Cathedral visible on clear days. Each floor contains a single enormous great chamber, complete with Gothic fireplaces. These were at one time removed, ready for sale in America, but were bought by Lord Curzon and reinstated as part of his restoration of the castle, which he subsequently opened to the public in 1914.
