Allington Castle
Allington was originally built in 1281 when Edward I gave Stephen of Penchester a license to crenellate (fortify) his residence. It is a quadrangular castle with square and round towers at the corners and mid-wall. Tudor alterations by the Wyatts in the fifteenth century proved for naught since, despite never being attacked, the castle was ravaged by fire in 1600. Fit only for use as a farmhouse, Allington underwent a wonderful restoration by Sir Martin Conway in the 20th century, only to be purchased by the Carmelite Fathers in 1951.
About this creation

Soldier at his post

Fortification

Blacksmiths workshop

castle and the fields

Castles' door




If you know the history of Allington, you will notice that some of the castle isn't in the exact shape because I used my entire grey brick collection on this castle.

This is my biggest ever creation because it has:

2 stables

1 armoury

3 sleeping chambers and a barracks

It is also 4 average green baseplates wide, and at its highest point 24 cm tall. {and 2056 grey pieces inside it.

Wow! That is great! In the process of building my second ship, I've been fooling around with some techniques, and am thinking of building some small castles. I am also going to post a new pirate MOC soon.
