This picturesque fortified mansion was built for Lord Hastings, who was dramatically seized and executed by Richard III in 1483. Hastings' descendants still believe they have a direct line to the throne of England. Explore the atmospheric moated remains ' including the fine gatehouse and a complete corner tower ' of this brick-built mansion which have been extensively conserved by English Heritage. Make it part of an enjoyable family day out in Leicestershire with a picnic in the grounds or take a walk around the moat.
