Chartley Castle lies in ruins to the north of the village of Stowe-by-Chartley in Staffordshire, between Stafford and Uttoxeter. It is a Grade II* listed building.
The motte and bailey castle was built by one of the early Earls of Chester circa 1100 CE as a safe stop over for their journeys to places like Tutbury. The present Chartley castle was built on the site of one of the first wooden castles to be built in United Kingdom circa 900 AD, and was rebuilt in 1220 by Ranulph de Blondeville, 4th Earl of Chester, who died in 1232.
