Chartley Castle was a motte and bailey castle build by one of the early Earls of Chester around 1100 as a safe stop over for their journeys to places like Tutbury. It was eventually passed by marriage to William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, and remained in the Ferrers family for more than 200 years.
Mary, Queen of Scots was one a prisoner here. It was destroyed by fire in 1781.
