Helmsley and Castle

The castle was built on a slightly rocky eminence between 1186 and 1227 by Robert de Roos. There were originally two moats surrounding a rectangular complex of a D-shaped keep and outer walls.
The only buildings still in good repair today are the west tower and the later mansion build by Edward Manners, the 3rd Earl of Rutland who owned the site from 1563 to 1587.
