Wressle Castle

Wressle Castle is a Grade I listed quadrangular castle located in Wressle, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The castle was built c.1380–1390 by Sir Thomas Percy. The castle was garrisoned by Parliament during the English Civil War, and was largely demolished by an act of Parliament in 1650 as a precaution. A fire gutted the remaining south range of the castle in 1796, the only part still inhabited. Today, the form of a moat is visible as earthworks, and ruined buildings still remain; the castle is privately owned, and serves as farm buildings.
