Wray Castle, Low Wray
Wray Castle, Low Wray
A castle in name only. An early-Victorian sham, designed by J.J. Lightfoot for his friend Dr James Dawson, a Liverpool surgeon, in 1840-47. One cannot help but admire the outrageous details (actually some Victorians definitely could). Grade II* listed.
It is now in the hands of the National Trust.
