Another Imperial Plate from the Lawrence Collection and yet another fairy castle similar to Castle Freke. A real retro structure in County Down looks like it has been built by a wannabee Lord rather than an historic fortification - though that may be my lack of knowledge rather than reality?

Refurb of an older derelict castle in 1850. Sold by NAMA in 2013 to Mr. Tayto, it says here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quintin_Castle
Not much at the DIA today: MORRISON, WILLIAM VITRUVIUS Building:CO. DOWN, QUINTIN CASTLE Date:? Nature:Tradition that WVM was employed here.
Per wikipedia, the castle has fallen into the hands of the false Mr. Tayto, the Northern pretender.
A few years later than this photo, Trove has this fascinating story about 20 year=old Miss Magdalen King-Hall (daughter of Admiral Sir George King-Hall), who was responsible for "The Cleverest Hoax of the Century", 'The Diary of a Young Lady of Fashion in the Year 1764-65'.

[https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Thanks. Associated Wikidata item is Q7272441 and I've improved that from the information below . I'm sort of getting my head around the that Northern Island Historical Map Viewer comes under a different Historic Map Viewer than both England and the Republic of Ireland (and possibly Wales and Scotland too for all I know). I've managed to home in on
Quinton CastleQuintin Castle and determined NIEA building id ref seems to be HB24/01/079 and the listed building database entry seems to hold a fair bit of info.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland Seems to be spelled Quintin Castle everywhere except the catalogue?
I've also got the image landed into a nice new Wikipedia Commons category for Quintin Castle . Sweet. If the link to the HB24/01/079 was visible that would be a better job.
There's a nicer view from this angle: goo.gl/maps/RFR9ByspDZLSamjbA
for years I thought that there was only one Tayto and now my life is diminished as I learn that Tandragee was an interloper
