MILLOM CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

The ruins of a castle or moated manor house are incorporated into the present farmhouse. A licence to crenellate was granted in 1335 and the east range was built later in the 14th century. The building was partially demolished in 1644. The standing remains include the great tower of 1600, a hall and the ruined gatehouse in the east range. The earthwork remains of a medieval moat survive to the west and north. A Roman coin hoard was supposedly found here in 1759. Part of the moat and the castle are also visible as earthworks and ruined buildings on air photographs mapped as part of the North West Coast Rapid Coastal Zone Assessment Survey. The feature appears to be still extant on the latest 1966 Ordnance Survey vertical photography.
