Bywell Castle

Bywell Castle was built in the early 15th century for Ralph Neville, the second earl of Westmorland. As can be seen in this view, the castle takes the form of a rectangular embattled tower, which is actually the gatehouse. The gatehouse was intended to be part of a larger set of buildings but it was never completed - King Henry III demanded an end to the building of the castle. Today castle is in ruins, but the shell of the gatehouse tower is intact.
