Description

Farleigh Castle is situated near Bath on the Wiltshire Somerset borders. Built in about 1380 by Sir Thomas Hungerford who was the first Speaker of the House of Commons and Steward to John of Gaunt. The Castle was sold in 1705 and largely dismantled for salvage. However, its subsequent ruined state and location meant that it became popular as a Picturesque destination.
