Mountfitchet Castle


Mountfitchet Castle near Stansted is a tourist attraction which consists of a reconstructed wooden castle from the medieval period. It was built in the 1980's and takes the visitor back in time over 900 years ago to experience what a Norman village would have looked like. 


With interactive displays and a variety of medieval buildings, the visitor centre consists of a ringwork wooden defence, a keep and enclosures where rescued wild and domestic animals are also allowed to wander freely amongsts the reconstructed village. Essentially an attraction that is tailored to family outings the visitor is also granted access to a toy museum. 


The site has recieved some criticism that the large numbers of tourists visiting the attraction have caused damage to the ancient site itself.
