Hinckley Castle was originally an 11th century earthwork motte and bailey fortress, founded by Hugh de Grantmesnil. Part of its impressive bailey survives but sadly the motte was destroyed in 1976. The large circular bailey platform, is still partially encased by a high rampart and a wide wet ditch. 4 miles east is Sapcote Castle and 8 miles west is Hartshill Castle.
Hinckley Castle is located in the town centre, off Trinity Lane. 13 miles south-west of Leicester, on the A47-B4668.
The site is in the War Memorial gardens and is freely accessible in daylight hours.
