Abstract:
Extant accounts of the castle have mistaken its phasing and nature; it was probably built as a stone hall in early 14th century (Caernarvon-headed doorway) and had a solar tower added to it in late 14th/early 15th century. Two centuries later part of the tower forebuilding was demolished, the N wing extensively remodelled, and an upper floor built over the hall, all this by the time of the 1624 inventory which names the rooms. Further drastic overhaul c 1700 was followed by piecemeal adaptations. Halton Castle was thus a partly defended manor house, possibly transitional to the later pele towers.
