Ford Castle, Ford - Northumberland (UA)

Originally a C14 quadrilateral castle with four corner towers, converted to a mansion in 1694 and further altered in 1761 (for John Hussey Delaval) and 1862 (for the Marchioness of Waterford). Now used for residential courses and as a venue for functions. A number of repairs have been undertaken to address the areas most affected by rainwater ingress, but further work is required. A programme of repairs is in progress.
