The builders are in at Lowther Castle
The castle is undergoing a multi-million pound restoration:
'The last resident was the Yellow Earl, who finally left the castle on New Year’s Day 1936; the castle was requisitioned by the army during the second world war and returned to the Lowther family in a poor condition. Many large country houses were demolished during this period but the seventh Earl decided to leave the castle façade as a monument in the landscape having removed the roof in 1957, and the grounds were used for a large chicken farm and commercial forestry business' LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
