Restored bastle at The Raw Farm

  • Description

    "The Keys to the Past website says "This is a post-medieval bastle standing among farm buildings 30m north-west of the present farmhouse at Raw Farm. It is built from roughly squared stone and survives to first floor level. It is rectangular in plan and has thick walls. The upper floor was rebuilt in the late 18th century. At the eastern corner of the basement there are signs that a small staircase once stood there. A staircase on the outside wall was probably built in the late 18th or 19th century. There are first floor windows on the north-east and north-west walls, one is decorated with carving including one of a female head. The upper room was the scene of the murder of the occupant Mary Crozier in 1792. A local criminal was hanged for her murder at Winter's Gibbet. This crime became famous and the place where Winters was hung became a landmark." The building is Grade II Listed." Photo by Mike Quinn, 2013.
