This house was named not because it was ever a castle but because of nearby watercress beds

Main Description: Click to expand/contract

Now a private house, this has never been a castle!  The name is a corruption of Causewell. T?he watercress beds in the grounds were a common feature in Victorian Hertfordshire but fell into disuse.  The river Lea runs close to the property, and fishing parties were often held here.
