Yanwath Hall


Yanwath Hall and farm is situated by the River Eamont to the north of the village of Yanwath in Cumbria. The hall incorporates a 14th century fortified house, with later additions. Yanwath Hall is a Grade I listed building on the National Heritage List for England. The courtyard range adjoining Yanwath Hall is seperately Grade I listed.

"An excellent example of a simple English fourteenth century tower-house may be seen at Yanwath Hall, in Westmorland, on a bold wooded bluff overlooking the bonny Vale of Eamont, about two miles south of Penrith. The tower, to which a hall and later buildings have been added, is stated to have been built by John de Sutton after he acquired the property by marriage in 1322. It commands an important ford over the Eamont, from which it is about half a bowshot distant." (W. Douglas Simpson c/o Cumbria County History Trust)[1]
