The castle was built in 1138-1140 by Henry de Blois, Bishop of Winchester and brother of King Stephen and grandson of William the Conqueror. The massive keep has an internal diameter of 175 feet. It is actually polygonal externally with buttresses at each angle. The buildings in the bailey included a great hall, a kitchen and a chapel. Housing was remodelled in the seventeenth century. This was the location for the UK's military camouflage centre in World War II. Restoration work on the keep ewas completed in 2010
