Kirby Muxloe Castle, Leicestershire, is one of the earliest major buildings in England to be built of brick. It is hard to imagine today, when brick is ubiquitous, but in the late medieval period it was a luxury material. As for the castle, well, what can you say - its such a beautiful sight, with the well-preserved mural tower to the left and the remains of the gatehouse to the centre in this photo. Wow!
