#20 Chipchase Castle
This is NOT an official Lego site
Castle is an imposing structure on the banks of the North
Tyne attributed to Walter Heron in the mid-14th century.
It replaced an earlier tower built at least a century
earlier. A Jacobean mansion was added by Cuthbert Heron
in 1621. The defensive tower is 34 x 51 feet in size and
50 feet tall. Its original oak portcullis is still in
place. The two tiered fifth floor parapets and turrets
were and are an outstanding feature of this castle.
