Artist's Description

An English Heritage Scheduled Ancient Monument

The remains of Brough Castle in the village of Brough (sometimes known as Brough under Stainmore), in the Eden District of Cumbria, England.

The village is on the site of the Roman Fort of Verterae, or Verteris. The fort, which once occupied the land to the south of the Swindale Beck, is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and covered a much larger area than the present castle. Brough Castle was originally built within the northern part of the former fort in the 11th Century and has had many changes through its history.

Verterae was built to control the lands of the Brigantes and guard the Roman road linking Carlisle with Ermine Street (the modern A66).

The first castle was built by William Rufus in the 1090s, as a stone motte and bailey (one of the first stone castles to be built in Britain) in the north part of the former Roman fort.

Brough Castle and Brough (Verterae) Roman fort and civil settlement is in the care of English Heritage.
