The ruins at Weoley Castle are over 700 years old and are the remains of the moated medieval manor house that once stood here. The site has been inhabited from the 12th century and, according to the Doomsday Book, was part of the estates of William Fitz Ansculf.

Excavations have revealed the wealthy status of the castle’s occupants. Finds have included glass from Syria and a range of kitchen equipment. Some of the objects can be seen at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
