Hylton Castle


Hylton Castle, a ruined stone castle originally built from wood by the Hilton (later Hylton) family shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066. Later rebuilt in stone in the late 14th to early 15th century. The castle underwent major changes to its interior and exterior in the 18th century.

One of the castle’s main features, is the heraldic devices found mainly on the west façade, which have been retained from the castle’s original construction. They depict the coats of arms belonging to local gentry and peers of the late 14th to early 15th centuries and provide an approximate date of the castle’s reconstruction from wood to stone.
