This is NOT an official Lego site


Chipchase 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.
