No Richard. It's in a garden in Chippenham not far from us. I saw it when we were having a wander whilst waiting for out car to be serviced one time. It stands about 7' high and must have been a rather large tree!

Do you know of any of the history on this Castle like when was it built?

Size wise it looks more like a home than a castle, but it does have the castle look to it also.

Carcassonne at night from my friends house. The evening of the French national holiday. Quatorze juillet. Known to us as Bastille Day

I don't know about this particular structure, but sometimes a country would put a small fort with a few guns at strategic places to deter, or defend from, attacks from sea.
Here's a couple of examples:

Chateau de Malves en Minervois. Our village chateau. The ceilings were all white stucco untill someone wanted to see behind it and check that state of it.


They were in for a BIG surprise!

The colours had been protected when it became fashionable to cover the ceilings in and it was all through the chateau
