Bolingbroke Castle was built in the early 13th century to a hexagonal plan, with five towers and a gatehouse.
The future King Henry IV was born here in 1366. Besieged and taken by Parliamentary forces in 1643, the towers and walls were later largely demolished, preventing further use of the castle.
This view across the moat from the SW shows the remains of two of the towers, and in the distance Old Bolingbroke church.
