Snape Castle, Snape with Thorp - Hambleton

Castle dated to c1430, with additions and alterations in the C16 and C18. It is comprised of extensive ruins, including some vaulted rooms and two towers. The rear ranges are in a poor condition. The upper parts of the towers are particularly unstable. Much repointing is required elsewhere. The front range is divided into two dwellings.
