Description:Meynell Hunt Meet by the ruins of Chartley Castle.

Chartley Castle was built by the Earls of Chester some time after the Norman Conquest. The original castle was constructed from earth and timber and was situated on top of a small natural hill. The whole was rebuilt in stone in the 1220s by Ranulph de Blundeville, Sixth Earl of Chester.

By 1545 the castle was a ruin and the family had moved into the more comfortable Chartley Hall, situated to the west of the castle. Today the towers and parts of the stonework remain.
