Muncaster Castle

near Ravenglass, Cumberland - Lord Muncaster


"Muncaster Castle was originally built by the Romans to guard a ford over the River Esk, which runs immediately beneath it. One tower of the old castle remains entire, and has been inhabited ever since. It has lately been restored by Mr. Salvin.

It came into the possession of the Pennington family about the time of the Norman Conquest, and they then removed to it from Pennington-in-Furness. It has been their principal residence, passing from father to son, since that time. King Henry the Sixth stopped here after the battle of Hexham, when a fugitive, and on leaving he gave a glass cup to Sir John Pennington, out of which the family have ever since been baptized. It is still unbroken, and is commonly called 'The Luck of Muncaster.' "
