Haresceugh


Haresceugh is a farm/hamlet in the Eden district of Cumbria, located about 3½ miles north east from the village of Kirkoswald and just under a mile south east of Renwick. Haresceugh Hall and Low Haresceugh are located about half a mile south east of Haresceugh Farm. Nether Haresceugh is located about 2 miles to the west. Today, they all form part of Kirkoswald Civil Parish.

In the past Haresceugh was a manorial centre; the Manor of Haresceugh was documented in the 12th century. The remains of Haresceugh Castle (Hall) are located a short distance south of Haresceugh Farm (at grid ref: NY6101042800). The Hall was recorded in a conveyance of about 1660, but pulled down in 1820. Just 2 fragments of walling survive today and the only remaining tower collapsed in 1866.[1]
