The Stonehouse (north of Denton Foot), Naworth Park, Nether Denton - Carlisle

A late C16 bastle which has been roofless and in a bad condition for some years. There is now damaging vegetation growth in the walls. Initial discussions with the owner regarding possible reuse have taken place. The site was surveyed in 2015 as part of a Historic England thematic project on bastles.
