BuckdenTowers: Buckden Towers is mainly a 15th century fortified manor. The tall brick tower was added in 1475, protected by walls and a moat, and surrounded by an outer bailey. It was used for many years as a palace by the Bishops of Lincoln, now it is home to the Claretian missionaries. Catherine of Aragon lived here during her imprisonment by Henry VIII.
