Ravensworth Castle and park wall, The Green, Ravensworth - Richmondshire

Late-C14, small roofless keep/gate tower and ruins of ancillary buildings, together with impressive water defences later adapted to form water gardens. Much repointing and consolidation is needed to all parts of the building. Significant parts of the standing remains, including the gate tower, are now at risk. A detailed record of the standing fabric has been completed.
