Pendragon Castle Cumbria, just south of Kirkby Stephen

  • Description

    DSCJ1758 1BWS There is legend that this was built by Uther Pendragon, King Arthur's father. Wiki has the truth: Despite legend (and the discovery of a Roman coin) there is no evidence of any pre-Norman use of this site. The castle was built in the 12th century by Ranulph de Meschines, during the reign of King William Rufus. It has the remains of a Norman keep, with the later addition of a 14th-century garderobe turret, and some further additions in the 17th century.
