English Heritage

Beeston Castle is one of the most dramatic ruins in the English landscape. It was built by Ranulf, 6th Earl of Chester, in the 1220s. Henry III seized the castle in 1237 and it remained in royal ownership until the 16th century. In the Civil War it withstood a long siege in 1644–5, before being surrendered by the Royalists and partially demolished.
