Remains of Simonburn Castle

  • Description

    ""The romantic ruins of Simonburn Castle rise half a mile west of the village. One walks along Castle Lane as far as the confluence of the Hopeshield and Castle Burns flowing swiftly down from the fells through their steep ravines. Here, where the forest descends to a charming dell and the burns meet, two small wooden bridges cross the water. Climbing steeply to the left one soon reaches the castle ruins, perched on a narrow plateau between the two ravines." The Great Parish of Simonburn from Hadrian's Wall to Carter Bar: An Historical Guide by Cecil Dickson Ward Davis (1972)." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2016.
