    "....The Castle of Middleham, a strong, well guarded manor house, was a principal residence of the Bishops of Durham from the Conquest till the end of the 14th century ...Bishop Pudsey may have had a house thereabout 1183 (Boldon Book (Surtees Soc) 12 51). Bishop Philip De Poitou (1197-1208) certainly stayed at Middleham (Feod Prior Dunelm 250 301). Bishop Louis Beaumont built a kitchen and began a new hall and chapel (Hist Dunelm Script Tres (Surtees Soc) (119)). The Manor house or site of the manor was sold in 1649 (Close 1649 Pt 12 No 15). The house was probably then in ruins. There was a fishpond, mentioned in 1313...."
