No.4, and castle wall incorporated, North Bailey - County Durham (UA)

The castle walls in this section are of varying periods, from the medieval through to modern repair. The walls are in a poor condition, with open joints, eroding foundations and structural cracks. Management of the walls is impeded by difficulty of access. A Historic England grant has been awarded for project development and a detailed scheme for repair is currently in preparation.
