Cumbria (near Barrow-in-Furness)
Originally it could possibly have been a Danish outpost. This remote castle is situated on
a small inhospitable windswept Island of Piel, 1 km off the southern tip of the Furness Peninsula as if protecting the harbour of Barrow-in-Furness.
Originally fortified in the reign of King Stephen.
A licence to crenelate was granted in 1327 to the Abbot and Convent of Furness and so
it became a fortified convent.
The visible remains we see today probably date from that time.
