Overview

Weoley Castle was a fortified manor house, not a true castle. It was called a castle because it had a moat, curtain wall, towers, battlements and arrow slits as well as an imposing gatehouse and impressive great hall.

It is a Grade II listed building. The ruins are one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Some of the manorial rolls – records of the six-monthly court of Weoley manor – are preserved in our Archives and Collections records.
