The royal castle of Hadleigh, Essex overlooks the Thames Estuary. The earliest phases of the castle appear to go back to the early 13th century, and the castle was confiscated by Henry III in 1239. It is now part of the national collection in the care of English Heritage. The original Ministry of Works sign remains at the lower part of the site.
