Lowther Castle and over one hundred acres of listed 17th Century gardens opened to the public for the first time on the 5th May 2012
Abandoned in the 1930s and now romantically ruinous, the castle and gardens chart the extraordinary story of the Lowther family, Earls of Lonsdale, on the site which has been their home for over 800 years.
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios have been working for the last four years to bringLowtherCastle and Gardens back from abandonment. The shell of the castle ruin is now saved from near collapse and made safe for visitors to explore; the 400 year-old ‘hidden’ gardens are revealed and the derelict stables transformed into a vibrant centre for visitors and the community.
