Stainborough Castle (England)

South Yorkshire     See list of castles in Inghilterra

Among the restored features is Stainborough Castle. Completed in 1731, it led to the estate being named Wentworth Castle and was one of the first Gothic follies in the country. It was among the most damaged parts of the estate after open cast mining undermined its foundations leading to the collapse of two of its towers. Now restored, the views from its main tower stretch as far as Ferrybridge power station and beyond on a clear day.
