Artist's Description

Greeba Castle (under private owenership)
At the foot of Greeba Plantation, on the T.T. course, is Greeba Towers and Greeba Castle. This, was once the home of Sir Hall Caine, the famous Victorian novelist.

The Castle and Towers were built at the beginning of the 19th century by William Norwell on the site of a property which had been known as Booilrenny.

After selling the Castle in 1854 for £825, Norwell moved into the Towers. The Castle was also used as both a hotel and a boarding school for boys. It was bought by Hall Caine in 1898.
