Brougham Castle Lake District England
Tuesday, March 31, 2009
Today I visited Brougham Castle in England. This castle dates from Norman times and is actually located on the site of a Roman fort which would pre- date the castle by about 1000 years.
Very briefly, the castle was founded by a Norman family and was passed to Robert Clifford who strengthened the defences. His descendant, Lady Ann Clifford inherited the castle and died there in 1676 subsequent to which the castle fell into ruin.
The site is very appealing with a river running close by and new born lambs gamboling in the sunshine.
