Built in 1392, the castle was destroyed in 1644 after being intrenched in two sieges during the English Civil War. Years later a second building was built on the grounds, and the destroyed remainder of the medieval structure was left in ruins. The new home dubbed “New Castle” was used as the dance school in Billy Elliot. And the destroyed “Old Castle” appeared in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves as “Locksley Castle”.
