Oakehampton Castle, one of the largest castle ruins in the South West.  The castle started out as a motte, which gained a stone keep in the late 11th century.  The castle was abandoned in 1539 after its owner, Henry Courtenay, Marquis of Exeter, was found guilty of conspiracy and executed by Henry VIII.

Chastleton House, Oxfordshire. A Jacobean country house, Chastleton was built between 1607 and 1612 by a prosperous wool merchant as an impressive statement of wealth and power. Owned by the same increasingly impoverished family until 1991, the house remained essentially unchanged for nearly 400 years as the interiors and contents gradually succumbed to the ravages of time, with virtually no intrusion from the 21st century. © Nadia Mackenzie

Swarkestone Pavilion, Derbyshire,About the property This tiny pavilion was a majestic grandstand for whatever went on in the enclosure in front. It is a mature expression in miniature of all that was best in Tudor and Jacobean architecture. The bathroom is contained in the top of one of the turrets and to reach it you must cross the open roof
