A dream which turned into a nightmare. Since this article was published, the owner of the castle placed himself into bankruptcy and late last year the castle was offered for sale, by the joint receivers, for offers over £2M with sealed bids. Whether or not it was sold I have no idea but it begs the question why on earth would anyone want to buy it with so many prohibition notices slapped on it!
