Description:
Commanding a magnificent view of the Pennines, medieval Brough Castle stands within the earth-works of a Roman fort guarding the strategic Stainmore routeway. The impressive tower-keep dates from c. 1200, replacing an earlier stronghold destroyed by William the Lion of Scotland in 1174. Like so many other castles hereabouts, Brough was restored in the 17th century by Lady Anne Clifford: traces of her interior fittings and kitchen gardens can still be seen.

All year at any reasonable time.

Dogs on leads are welcome - contact site for any restrictions. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere.
