No.1 Golden Square (Haltwhistle)
The oldest part of this building is a post-medieval bastle, probably built in the late 16th or early 17th century. Although the building has been altered in later years there are several features typical of bastles. These include very thick walls and a plinth around the base of the walls made from massive boulders.
