Ravensworth Castle
Ravensworth Castle was the home of the Fitzhugh family. Built in the 14th century out of sandstone, the castle was used as a quarry by the inhabitants of Ravensworth Village when it was abandoned in the 15th century. Around the top of the tower runs the latin inscription: Chrs dns ihs via fons et origo, alpha et omega (Christ, Lord Jesus, the way, the fountain-head and the source, the beginning and the end) Kirby Hill Church in the background.
