Ravensworth Castle is a ruined 14th-century castle in the village of Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, England. It has been designated a Grade I listed building by English Heritage.

History

The earliest reference to the castle records a visit from King John in 1201.[2]

The remaining parts of Ravensworth Castle date from the late 14th century, when it belonged to Henry, 1st Baron FitzHugh.[3][4] In 1391 he enclosed 200 acres (81 ha) around the castle, creating a park.[5] The castle was gradually dismantled, starting in the 16th century, and the stone was used for other buildings in the area.[5]

Ravensworth Castle and Park Wall were given a Grade I listed building designation by English Heritage on 4 February 1969.[3] The Grade I listing is for buildings "of exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important".[6] The castle and nearby earthworks have been designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument.[3]

Architecture

The castle is located on the south east side of Ravensworth.[7]

The castle is surrounded by a dry moat.[4] Constructed of sandstone and faced with ashlar, the remaining structure consists of a three-storey tower attached to a gatehouse, with further wall and tower fragments.[3][5]
