Monument Number 52101

Hob Uid: 52101
Location :
North Yorkshire
Harrogate
Burton-on-Yore
Grid Ref : SE2342078880
Summary : Alleged site of a 12th century castle. The published site of the castle is centred in an area of faint ground disturbance with traces of rubble walling protruding above the surface. There re no earthworks or other artificial features. The only features visible are associated with a Medieval or later mill race.
More information : [SE 2342 7888] Castle [GT] (Site of). (1)

Undoubtedly an old castle was standing, large stones in a few
places projecting from the ground have been dressed by skilled
workmen. (2)

Burton upon Ure. Near Albborough Hall is the site of a castle
founded by Wm. Le Gros, Earl of Albemarle who in 1138 was created
Earl of York. (3)

The published site of the castle is centred in an area of faint
ground disturbance with traces of rubble walling protruding above
the surface. The remains measure approximately 30m. N-S and 32m.
E-W and are too ill-defined to justify survey action. The site
occupies a slightly elevated position, but is overlooked by rising
ground on the east and south east, and is non defensive. There
are no associated earthworks or other artificial features. The
only trace of 'skillfully dressed stones' (authy 2) occurs at
SW 2335 7890 where a ruined half buried wall of ashlar projects
from the bank of the River Ure. This wall is partly encircled by
a dry water course (re-surveyed at 1/2500) and was indicated as
the remains of the castle by the present owner Mr. C.F.E.
Bardsley-Powell of Aldburgh Hall. The wall appears to be the
remains of a mill race and the water course is probably the goit
to this mill. A stream feeding this goit at SE 2338 7888 has
now been piped underground though various overflow pipes and
springs still issue from the bank of the river and flow through
the rubble which now blocks the race. It is most unlikely that
these latter remains constitute a castle site. (4)
