-**Helen Cox, 22, from England, wrote:** 
- In my final year at University I did a study on the Castles built and developed by Lord William Hastings and Kirby Muxloe was the first red brick castle in England at the time. Also the first castle designed to house new artillery, a barreled gun, and even though it was not finished it is a remarkable construction.\\ 
-**Sue Boud, 52, from England, wrote:** 
- ​Remains of a red brick castle, with moat, begun by William, lord Hastings in 1480. it was never finished because Hastings was executed by Richard the third for treason. all that remains are walls and a tower. a pleasant place for picnics and fishing in the moat owned by English heritage.\\
