Site information
ConditionDestroyed, replaced by manor house and later house

Kingerby Castle was in the small settlement of Kingerby some five miles north-west of Market Rasen, Lincolnshire.

It was a motte and bailey castle which was burnt down in 1216. The motte was then altered to form a platform for a manor house which was built on the site. In 1812 the manor house was demolished and replaced by Kingerby Hall, which still stands on the site.[1][2]
