      Formerly a great stronghold of the Lord Wardens of the Marches, Naworth is a romantic, medieval castle set in rugged and historic Border country, some twelve miles north east of Carlisle. Home of the Dacre and Howard families, the castle dates back to the early 14th century, although there is evidence of an earlier fortification in 1270.
