Bagot's Castle, a 14th century castle in the village of Baginton, Warwickshire in the English Midlands. It now stands in ruins, and this website is dedicated to those volunteers who are conserving what remains for future generations.

The original building is believed to have been constructed on the site in the 11th century, at the time of King Henry I. It was rebuilt as the current castle in the late thirteen hundreds by Sir William Bagot, a distinguished nobleman of the time. He is thought to have entertained many distinguished guests there, including the Duke of Hereford (later Henry IV).

The castle subsequently passed through several hands, and eventually became derelict in the 16th Century. It remains so to this day, but in the middle of the last century some excavation work was carried out to expose the remains.

In the last few years there has been renewed interest in the castle. The remains have been consolidated and the whole site opened up to expose other historic features. An education visitor centre has been built and a picnic area added for the many visitors that have visited the castle.since it was opened to the public in 2009.
