Stokesay Castle is a medieval fortified manor house which dates back to the 13th century. Learn how it survived the tumultuous changes in religion and society over time, meaning it was preserved so well for visits today.
Originally a stark Norman stronghold, the foundation building was transformed into a manor house between 1285 and 1305 and further developed by the Elizabethans in Tudor times – the evidence of which is clear to see in its outward appearance with its timber framed structure easily recognisable from that era.
It was constructed by Laurence of Ludlow, one of the wealthiest men in England at that time, the manor house has gabled windows with outstanding views, regular events and a fantastic café which sources its cakes and food locally.
The beautiful medieval town of Much Wenlock which played a leading role in the 19th century revival of the Olympic Games, is a short drive from Lower Barn.
Dr William Penny Brookes, the founder of the Wenlock Olympian Society and the inspiration for the modern Olympic Movement, was originally from Wenlock Bath. The 2012 London Olympic Games named their mascot Wenlock after the town.
Learn more about the town’s role at the Much Wenlock Museum or head to the traditional local shops for friendly service. The edge of the town is home to the peaceful ruins of Wenlock Priory, a former Anglo-Saxon monastery founded around 680. Visit the cloister garden or make a heritage-inspired purchase at the priory’s on-site shop.
