Whorlton Castle Gatehouse, Castle Bank, Whorlton, Hambleton - North York Moors (NP)

Shell remains of a late C14 gatehouse, which was altered in the C16. Repairs have been carried out with the support of the Culture Recovery fund and management of the site has been improved by the involvement of the parish council. It is hoped that this will help to avert further vandalism.
