Thanks Phil I noticed the castle resemblance but this would not be any connection with the Warwick Castle would it ??? i think that was nearer Gosta Green. Dek

I don't think there was any connection, the Warwick Castle as you say was further down at Gosta Green and was on Aston Street between Duke St and Sheep St. Here is a photo just before demolition it's on the right side of the photo.

Hi, would The Castle at reply 1489 be the same Castle that was the reason for Castle St which ran down from Dale End beside M & S??
