Baz Richardson / 10,700 items
Stokesay Castle near Craven Arms in Shropshire is "one of the best-preserved medieval fortified manor houses in England", according to historian Henry Summerson.

The first floor of Stokesay Castle, which formed the original entrance to the South Tower, contains a 17th-century fireplace, reusing the original 13th-century chimney. The beautiful carved fireplace features male and female figures, interspersed with grotesque heads. This room in the private apartments was refashioned in the 17th century into a fine panelled chamber.

Stokesay Castle is managed by English Heritage.
