 Durham Barnard Castle

English

Perched high atop a steep bank overlooking the River Tees, Barnard Castle remains an imposing sight. It was damaged in 1630 when Sir Henry Vane bought it to use its stone to rebuild his preferred residence, Raby Castle. The foundations date back to the 12th century. Once one of the largest castles in northern England, it was also the principal residence of the Baliol family and a major power base in the many conflicts between the English and Scottish crowns, the rebellious nobles and the church.
