Brougham and Brough Castles in Cumbria have a similar history. Both were built on the site of Roman forts where the earthworks are still visible today. Brougham was constructed in a strategic position by the crossing of the River Eamont and Brough was built to safeguard routes from the North.
Brougham and Brough were held by the same two families – the Vieuxponts and the Cliffords – for much of their history, and it was under Lady Anne Clifford in the 17th century that the castles enjoyed a last lease of life. During the 18th century, however, both castles fell into ruin.
This guidebook is the first to link the two sites, and includes a fascinating history of the two castles and their inhabitants. There is also a guided tour of both sites which sheds new light on these once impressive strongholds.
