The building to some extent defies categorisation, being neither fully a castle, nor is it fully in Goring. The word is often used for English country houses constructed after the castle-building era (c.1500) and not intended for a military function. One of Worthing’s two Grade I listed buildings (deemed by the Department for Culture, Media & Sport to be of exceptional interest), this is without doubt Worthing’s most important building in terms of its architecture. It has been described by Ian Nairn as reflecting “the equivocal taste of the 1790s as well as anywhere in the country.”
