The History Royalty Castle was constructed in 1806 by Lt. Colonel John Houlton, successor to one of the largest estates in England and was the principal of six gate lodges on his estate. It was developed on the site of Farleigh House and was intended to be a miniature version of Farleigh Manor and Farleigh Castle. `Fernleah`, the land that the Estate lies on, was mentioned in a charter of King Elthered as far back as 987AD. The land was held by a succession of nobility with varying fortunes, many of whom fared badly and lost their heads! Now Grade 2 listed, it is a building of great charm and holds a fascinating history.
