From Windsor to Penrhyn and Charleville to Lowther, some of the most ambitious architectural projects of the Regency period were outwardly designed in a fortified style and assumed the title of castles. Some of them also made internal use of medieval decorative detail, both Romanesque and Gothic. This lecture will examine the buildings and sources from which this castle style was drawn. It will also consider the wider context in which it developed, and the growing awareness of medieval architectural history and style that it represents.
