Danby Castle

Danby Castle

Dating from around 1270,  Danby Castle was more a fortified manor house than a castle. Much of the building has disappeared over the years. Lords of the Manor were De Brus, De Thweng, and the Latimer familys. One interesting resident was Katherine Parr, after her second husband Lord John Latimer died, she married King Henry the VIII and survived the experience.
