I couldn't find out very much about this castle. It was built in 1821, I don't know when it has been abandoned. In 1841, the proprietress financed various improvements in the village, like the extension of roads.



Exploring the castle was partially quite tricky. Large parts of the floors, ceilings and roofs had already collapsed. A lot of the few remaining floors had holes, most of the stairs were soaked and unstable due to rainwater and moisture. For this reason, only a few areas of the buildung were still reasonably safe accessible. In the end, in this advanced state of decay, the castle is beyond saving, I think.

Tricky to explore is an understatement it seems! Shame there’s not much history on it, it would be nice to see it in it’s former glory.

To go up the stairs was indeed partly borderline...

I could only find one historical photo of the castle from earlier times.
