2015 sees the start of new gardens into the castle ruins, and the planting of the Dan Pearson designed Parterre garden. English Heritage and LET have completed the essential stabilisation work to the front facade of the central tower so at last the castle ruin is scaffolding free and looking beautiful.

100 years since the raising of the Lonsdale Battalion of the Border Regiment by the Yellow Earl here at the castle. The Lowther insignia was used on their battalion badge; they went on to fight through the Somme. The Griffin is in the church

Our summer wild-flower beds are looking gorgeous. We've just finished seeding all the remaining acres of new ones for next year.
