Pendragon Castle, according to legend, was the fortress of Uther Pendragon, father of King Arthur. In fact, the ruins date from the 12th century. It was last used in the 17th century, when restored by Lady Anne Clifford. You'll find it beside the B6259, a little north of the hamlet of Outhgill, about 4 miles south of Kirkby Stephen, on the banks of the River Eden and in the shadow of Wild Boar Fell. It is on private land and access is not always possible.  It can be seen from the road. Post code is approximate.
