In the rolling Shropshire countryside, Rowton Castle may be found. Dating back to 1234, the castle has stood in the grounds for nearly 800 years. Rowton Castle, as it stands today shows the work of many periods, generations have added and taken away and we are left with a hotel of amazing beauty.
Unfortunately, more is known about the owners of the castle, than about the house itself. Historians and have been able to offer some detail, but certainly not as much as we had hoped. Like a magpie of sorts, we collect as many ‘Rowton related’ items as we can, eager to find out more.
In recent weeks, a number of photographs and a postcard or two from many years ago were acquired. Small, but perfectly formed, they depict a Rowton that we would never know.
