Bagot’s Castle


Bagot’s Castle, in the village of Baginton on the outskirts of Coventry, is believed to originally been built in the 11th century, at the time of King Henry I. It was rebuilt around the late 14th century by Sir William Bagot, a distinguished nobleman of his time. All that remains are the ruins of this historic castle.

The Bluebells at Bagot's Castle are a wonderful site to see - best last week in April and during the month of May. (Image attached).
