Whitley Castle bastle-like house (Knaresdale with Kirkhaugh)
The remains of a post-medieval building survives as a series earthworks in Whitley Castle Roman fort. The building measures about 7m wide by 20m long, with traces of an internal partition. Its walls are less massive than those of a nearby bastle which suggests it may be a a less defensible building possibly dating to the 18th or 19th centuries. This building may have been a replacement for the nearby bastle or part of an enlarged settlement contemporary with nearby Whitlow.
