THE CASTLE: Hartlebury Castle and its surrounding landscape have belonged to the See of Worcester since circa 860 A.D. and a mansion has been at the centre of this landscape from circa.1260 when the site was moated. The surviving western arm of this moat is divided by a causeway from the mill pond. Hartlebury was turned into a fortified residence for the Bishop of Worcester before the end of the 13th century and its defences were completed around 1450 with the addition of a gatehouse by the east arm of the moat.
