Ogle Castle

Ogle Castle.

Ogle Castle is a former fortified manor house at Ogle, near Whalton, Northumberland. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building.

The moated site on the bank of the Ogle Burn presents the remains of a medieval tower incorporated into a 16th century manor. Licence to crenellate the manor was granted to Robert Ogle in 1341.

William the Conqueror granted a deed to Humphrey de Hoggell (Ogle) to enjoy "all the liberties and royalties of his manor" after the conquest.[1] The Ogle family held the estate from before the Norman Conquest until 1597 when it passed by marriage to the Cavendish family and later to Hollis.
