Fillongley, Warwickshire

Fillongley is a village in the North Warwickshire district of the county of Warwickshire in England. The village is centred around the crossroads of the B4102 and the B4098 and Tamworth. In medieval times there were two castles. These might not have existed at the same time and neither survived into the 16th century. The earliest was a ring earthwork of prehistoric or King Stephen's time. The second was probably a fortified manor house, held by the de Hastings family.
