Notes: Burwell Castle was an unfinished medieval enclosure castle[1] in Burwell, Cambridgeshire, England. The archaeologist Thomas Lethbridge excavated the site in 1935. At the time portions of stone walling survived but were later destroyed during testing of a fire hose. The castle site was bought by the Burwell Parish Council in 1983.
