When we were in Shrewsbury for my friend’s wedding, we noticed the ruins of this building and were keen to explore it.  Moreton Corbet Castle was once a Medieval stronghold and later during the Tudors, an elaborate Elizabethan Manor house was built alongside it. The site dates back to the 11th century and you can tell from the ruins of the castle and the shell of the once proud, Elizabethan building that at one time it would have been truly magnificent.

 

I have to admit, I was pretty excited to explore this place, even though it is just a shell. If you follow me on Pinterest then you will have noticed my board dedicated to ruins and derelict buildings. I am quite fascinated by derelict buildings and I was in awe of the desolate, ruined but defiant nature of this building which at one point would have been full of life. It’s certainly a building that has a lot of stories to tell. Are there places like this that you have visited before? I’d love to know!
