Coupland Castle

Hob Uid: 3889
Location :
Northumberland
Ewart
Grid Ref : NT9354031150
Summary : Country house, incorporating a tower house completed in 1619. The four storey tower house has a vaulted basement, later sudivided to form two rooms, and an original newel stair. A slightly later extension to the left of the tower forms a T-plan. An internal date stone of 1619 may relate to this work. The building was further extended in the 18th century and again between 1820 and 1825.
More information : [NT 93543115] Coupland Castle [T.I.] Tower [L.B.] (1)

The tower at Coupland was probably built as a direct result of the Border Commission of 1584. (2)

Coupland Castle is a tower-house of late date, though an interior date stone of 1619 seems too late. Most of the tower was restored in the early 19th century. (3)

Apart from the tower, the building as a whole, is not outstanding. See GP. AO/55/286/5. (4)

Coupland Castle, grade 1. (5)

It seems that the tower was not completed until 1619, for George Wallis only bought the estate in 1600. (6)

Country house, incorporating a tower house built after 1584. The four storey tower house has a vaulted basement, later sudivided to form two rooms, and an original newel stair. A slightly later extension to the left of the tower forms a T-plan. An internal date stone of 1619 may relate to this work. The building was further extended in the 18th century and again between 1820 and 1825. (5)
