Lady Park Lodge, Ravensworth, Birtley area
Date: Date Unknown
Reference Number: GL003604
At one time, Ravensworth Castle was the oldest fortified house in Durham County but now all that remains of the Castle are the two towers – the rest of the castle was demolished in the 1950’s. From the 1920s it had been used as a girls school but for hundreds of years prior to that had been the home of the Liddell family. In its heyday the estate employed a fleet of servants including a woodcutter and coachman, all of whom were housed on the estate. More recently the house has been brought to public attention after being featured in the BBC programme Restoration.
