Acton Burnell Castle was constructed in 1284 by Robert Burnell, Bishop of Bath and Wells, and is located near the village of Acton Burnell in Shropshire. Referred to as a castle, it is actually a 13th-century fortified manor house. It’s believed the first parliament in which commoners participated was held in an adjacent barn. It has a reputation for being haunted by a young girl and a wounded soldier.
