KENDAL CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

A ruined 13th century castle built on a ringwork and barbican of circa 1184, which in turn replaced the Castle How motte and bailey (SD 59 SW 5). There are fragments of the curtain wall, four towers and internal buildings visible. The earthworks comprise a nearly circular ditch, 85 feet wide, with an outer rampart up to 19 feet above the bottom of the ditch, and a small outer enclosure or barbican on the north side. The castle was dismantled in 1566. Catherine Parr was born here in 1510. A Roman gold coin has been found on the site. Scheduled.
