Nafferton Castle (ruins)


This is the earthwork remains of a 13th century castle and a later 15/16th century tower house, standing on the western edge of Whittle Burn. The tower is associated with the local legend of Lang Lonkin, a pirate, who is said to have murdered the lady and child of nearby Welton Hall, here. The ruins are a Scheduled Monument.
