Askham Hall
'Askham Hall, a 14th century pele tower converted into an Elizabethan mansion in the mid 16th century by Thomas Sandford, whose family lived in it until 1828 when it became a rectory. It has three irregular wings around an oblong courtyard. Askham Hall has been the home of Lord Lonsdale since the dismantling of nearby Lowther Castle' LinkExternal link
