A castle noted in Domesday Book. Consists principally of a small C12 square tower
keep with flat corner turrets, 1 of which contains a staircase. Entrance, originally
into the 2nd storey, is now by breaches into the ground storey. All floors appear
to have been of wood. The keep is advantageously placed on a steep crag. The inner
bailey must have been to the South and fragments of ancient walls and masonry are
to be seen in the park and incorporated into buildings, stables and offices (qv).
Clitheroe Castle, Premises occupied by Ribble Valley Borough Council and Outbuilding and
Stable block form a group.
