Lennoncourt

Lennoncourt is a castle situated in White City, Ilefain, which acts as the center for political dealings for the House of Lords.

The castle was built on top a plateau, which had been specially constructed, and a moat measuring 20 yards was cut out of solid rock. The main building of the castle consists of the gatehouse flanked by two towers at the north-east corner which faces Silverhammer Road; three round towers at the three remaining corners, one being added at a later date than the others. Four curtain walls connects the four towers, the northern and southern wall are recessed to allow them to be commanded from the towers. Inside the castle are a hall and chapel, which are connected to the south-western tower, and a brewhouse and bakehouse. There is also a passage which runs under the moat toward the edge of the river. The courtyard is divided by a wall built running from the north wall to the south wall. Underneath the castle walls stands a dovecot and an orchard runs from the castle to the Pool in the east.
