CASTLE HEAD - Nr. Lindale - List Entry

  • Description

    "Large house, now field centre. Late C18. For J Wilkinson. Extensively re-modelled and extended in the later C19, with further C20 additions made when used as a school.....the house was built for John Wilkinson (1728-1808) the iron master and is raised above the adjoining mosslands which he drained and improved from 1778 onwards. Despite its late C19 appearance, an early C19 view reproduced by JM Robinson shows that the walls, the roof shape, and the positions of the openings, remain from the original house...."
