Whitlow III bastle (Knaresdale with Kirkhaugh)
About 120m north-west of Whitlow Farmhouse is a derelict range of farm buildings that was originally a bastle. It was built in the late 16th or early 17th century and altered later that century. It is one of three bastles at Whitlow, the others being called Whitlow I and Whitlow II. The thickest wall of the bastle is about 0.9m thick and original byre doorway stands in the south end wall. Other original features include some small blocked openings at ground and first floors. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
