Hailes Castle, Stanway

Hailes Castle was a castle in the village of Stanway, Gloucestershire in Gloucestershire, England.

The castle was built around the 11th or early 12th century near the church of St Peters' in the village. The castle was moated, although this has since been filled in. The castle was strengthened by Ralph of Worcester at the start of the difficult years of the Anarchy, with Hailes Castle playing a role in the conflict between 1139-45. The castle was probably demolished in the 1240s to make way for the construction of Hailes Abbey.
