Bury Castle Remains
The only visable remains of Bury Castle, built in 1469 by Sir Thomas Pilkington, is this section of its medieval foundations. Bury Castle was a medieval moated site of possibly 14 century origin, later strengthened around 1470 as a fortified manor house. The de Bury family held a manor here from the 12 century. This excavated site now forms part of Castle Square in the town centre. A guide to the history of Bury Castle is available from Bury Tourist Information Centre.
