An English Heritage Grade I Listed Structure

Commanding an impressive view over the Eden Valley in Cumbria, England, stand the remains of Pendragon Castle, thought to be constructed during the reign of William II in the twelfth century by Ranulph de Meschines, Although the keep dates to Norman times, the Garderobe Turret (toilet) dates from the fourteenth century.

Legend suggests that a much earlier Pendragon Castle on this site belonged to Uther Pendragon, father of the legendary King Arthur.

If you visit this site, please be aware that it is on private land and that animals are grazing around the castle.

Pendragon Castle is an English Heritage Grade I Listed structure (Number: 1144890).
