Hanley Castle (castle)
Hanley Castle was a Norman castle that stood to the south of the present site of the village of Hanley Castle, which lies 2 km north of Upton-upon-Severn, in the county of Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. (grid reference ).
13th Century Castle
After this the castle gradually fell into decay and was mostly demolished due to its ruined state in the reign of King Henry VIII. The masonry of the only remaining tower is said to have been removed in 1795 to repair the bridge at Upton upon Severn.
No traces of the castle building now remain. A modern house which stood on some portion of the site was destroyed by fire in January 1904. The site is marked by tall conifers and a dry remnant of the moat ditch and bank.
