Brougham Castle - English Heritage

Brougham Castle

Picturesque Brougham Castle was begun in the early 13th century near the site of a Roman fort guarding the crossing of the River Eamont. It was reinforced in the 14th century but was in poor condition by the time of the Civil War. It was thereafter restored as a residence by the indomitable Lady Ann Clifford. Today, the site features an introductory exhibition including carved stones from the nearby Roman fort.
