This picture of Codnor Castle was taken by reader Ryan Ball, 30, of Mundy Street in Heanor.

It is a ruined 13th Century castle. It is a stone keep and bailey fortress building and was established by William Peverel.

By 1211 it was owned by Henry de Grey, a descendant of the Norman knight Anchetil de Greye. Henry’s descendants include the long line of Lords Grey of Codnor, the Lords Grey of Ruthyn, Wilton and Rotherfield, Lady Jane Grey.
