Description"The original castle, dating in part from the 14th century fell into disrepair many centuries ago. The eastern stable block (nearest the camera) was built in 1760 and is Grade II* listed. The main house to the left is surprisingly recent, dating from 1998. It stands on the site of an 18th century house which was demolished in 1960 because the owners could not sustain the cost of maintenance. See http://www.lostheritage.org.uk/houses/lh_northumberland_swinburnecastle_info_gallery.html Between the house and the stable block, the single storey building is the 18th century orangery (Grade II listed)."
