NZ5607 : Castle House Farm

taken 13 years ago, near to Great Broughton, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Castle House Farm
Castle House Farm
Situated on the old track between the medieval village of Parva Broctune north to the mill on Broughton Beck (now a Public Bridleway). The house is in an commanding position to defend the manor and village to the south. There was probably no castle ever here but more likely a keep or watchtower. A double chain cannon ball has been found on the farm but this is more probably ammunition rather than a projected missile.
The current house dates from about 1800 but may been built on earlier foundations.
