Millom Castle (ruined portions), Millom - Copeland

Ruins of castle or moated manor house incorporating the present farmhouse. Built in early C14 and much altered in the later C14 and again in the C16 and C17. Gate piers to east and north east are listed grade II. A major problem is the heavy sapling growth on upstanding ruins which the owner has agreed to clear. Discussions about a scheme of consolidation continue.
