This gallery of pictures features Stokesay Castle, the finest and best preserved fortified medieval manor house in England.
It is set in peaceful countryside near Craven Arms in Shropshire, close to the Welsh border.
Stokesay Castle began its life as a stark Norman stronghold, but was transformed sometime between 1285 and 1305 into a grand manor house.
The Elizabethans added the timber-framed Jacobean gatehouse in the 17th century.
