About Us

Some 4,000 years after the original structure disappeared from view, more than 60 English Heritage volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to piece together archaeological evidence, gather authentic tools and school themselves in ancient construction methods to recreate the ancient thatched wattle-and-daub dwelling that stood here long before the familiar stones of the 13th-century castle.  Beeston has always been a historically significant site – from its glory days as a medieval fortress to its ultimate decline in the Civil War – as well as a place to enjoy its natural woodland setting and spectacular views. Now this new labour of love enables us to venture even further back in time to better appreciate the life and times of our distant ancestors.

    Pleasantly surprised when we visited Beeston Castle. Thought it would be just a few ruins but it is much more. The ruins of the castle are more extensive than we originally thought. The area... Read full review

    We nearly didn't visit, as it was "only ruins" but so glad we did. It's a hike up to the very top to explore the upper ruins but the views were amazing and there are plenty of little areas to... Read full review
