Details

Kirby Muxloe Castle was probably Leicestershire’s first brick building, built during the Wars of the Roses, and thanks to the amazing survival of the original building accounts we know many details of how it was built. Peter Liddle will explain all this…and the connection of the site to Donington le Heath Manor House!
