  • Description

    "This tower house http://www.ecastles.co.uk/cocklaw.html was built by the Erringtons in the late 14th or early 15th century and was the family seat for two hundred years until they moved into Beaufront castle closer to Hexham. It escaped the usual robbery of stone in the 18th or 19th centuries due to its isolation and is now used for storage of farm machinery and livestock. It still stands almost 40ft high but the wooden floors to have collapsed, leaving in place only half of the ground floor vaulted lower ceiling which will soon fall in." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2009.
