Gleaston Castle

UK»England»Cumbria»Gleaston Castle

Gleaston Castle: This enclosure castle, built in the second half of the 13th century, is quite simple in form and has four corner towers linked by a curtain wall. The castle was abandoned and ruined by the end of the Middle Ages, and only three towers survive, along with sections of the curtain wall. It is a good example of an enclosure castle that still retains its original layout and has been little altered.
