The Black Swan Hotel in the centre of the village is said to have played host to none other than William Wordsworth who was visiting his future wife. The castle is well worth a visit and can be found just out of the square. Built around1200 and was once known as Furstan Castle. Sir Charles Duncombe bought the castle after it was rendered useless by Oliver Cromwell. The current Earls of Feversham are descended from Sir Charles.
