Low Pond and Raby Castle
Low Pond and Raby Castle
The ponds in Raby Park were created in the 18th century, and the castle moat was drained. Low Pond borders the south side of the castle.
Raby Castle was built in the 14th century for the Nevill family. In 1569, the castle and grounds were forfeited to the crown. The estate was bought by Sir Henry Vane the Elder, in 1626, and is still owned by his descendants.
