In the southern bailey of Castle Hill, are foundations and fragments of high walls and more stonework may have been absorbed in the construction of the brick house. Founded in the late 15th century, by Thomas Gray the front of the buildings are now one continuous facade. On the angle is a narrow three storey tower, then the remains of a turret and last the gateway, which has been absorbed in the late 16th century house. To the rear, which is partly of stone and ruined former internal Tudor brick walls, are various windows and blocked doorways. 5 miles south-east is Magazine Gateway and 9 miles north-east is Mountsorrel Castle.
