THE re­mains of John of Gaunt’s cas­tle in Nor­wood, near Har­ro­gate, is up for sale along with a range of farm build­ings.

The build­ings come with plan­ing per­mis­sion to con­vert into a 3,900sq ft five bed­room house, while the re­mains are in the grounds and are an op­tional ex­tra for the buyer.

The de­vel­op­ment site, which is on the mar­ket for £300,000, has views over Beaver Dyke Reser­voir and mea­sures 1.45 acres with the cas­tle ex­tend­ing to 0.95 acres

The cas­tle, now re­duced to ru­ins, is thought to have been John of Gaunt’s hunt­ing lodge. Ed­ward III be­gan build­ing it in 1334 and in 1372 granted it to John of Gaunt, who was his son and was the Duke of Lancaster. Con­tact Carter Jonas, 01423 422039.
