A view of the keep of Tamworth Castle from the park. The castle is open to the public and full of both interesting artefacts and descriptions of the history of the castle, its residents and the town in general. There has been a keep on this site since 1070 and it is now owned by the town. The castle mound is a man-made feature dating from the Saxon Period. It was built during the time of Aethelfleda, who ruled from 913 to 918.
