Simonburn Castle

  • Description

    "Keys to the Past Web Site: Simonburn Castle stands on a steep hill formed by the junction of two streams. The remains of a 13th century tower house lie at its core. Although it was repaired in the 18th century, and used for a time as an eyecatcher for Nunwick Park, the upper storeys have now collapsed. The tower was built of small stone blocks. Only the ground floor basement of the tower stands today, which has become filled in with rubble." Photo by Les Hull, 2004.
