Scargill Castle

UK»England»County Durham»Scargill Castle

Scargill Castle was originally a late 12th or early 13th century stone fortified manor house. When adding a new Tudor hall and flanking the high curtain wall of the courtyard, with a three storey gabled undefended gatehouse. Sadly by the late 17th century the castle had once again been abandoned, however there is still a story of a subterranean passage, which leads to Egglestone Abbey. The gatehouse and its projecting semi-circular stair tower, are now adjoined by fragmentary lengths of curtain wall and on the site of the old hall, are the remains of a magnificent Tudor fireplace, which once graced the great hall.
