#6 & 43 The Keep
This is NOT an official Lego site
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.
