Cockermouth Castle
Cockermouth Castle
This is partly a private house partly in ruins. It was first built in 1134, but after a turbulent history in the Middle Ages during which it was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt, it passed to the Wyndham family and only the gatehouse, courthouse and some adjacent buildings were maintained. It is at NY122308.
