This is NOT an official Lego site

Newcastle was begun, possibly as early as 1168, by Henry II on the site of a motte castle dating to 1080. The ten year construction under Maurice the Builder included the 62 x 56 foot Great Tower, a many-sided curtain with rectangular towers, and additional buildings along the curtain. Often attacked because of its location in the morthern counties of England, the imposing tower is the major remnant of the castle.
