BROUGH CASTLE

BROUGH CASTLE
BROUGH CASTLE

Impressive, atmospheric, but austere, ruins of a 13th century fortress, built in a strategic position partly on the site of a Roman fort. It was in the frontline of border warfare between the English and Scots, restored by Lady Anne Clifford in the 17th century, but declined after a fire in 1666 and was abandoned in the 18th century.

NB Castle Brough is an attractive part of the village on the south side of the A66.
