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.

We are preparing to open the castle once again from Friday 2nd April
(if permitted by Government restrictions).
This is Easter Weekend, and we hope to have an Easter Egg Hunt. This may have to be different from previous years, but we are planning for as much fun for the children as possible.
