BROUGHAM CASTLE - English Heritage
Moor Lane, Penrith, CA10 2AA
In a picturesque setting beside the crossing of the River Eamont in Cumbria, Brougham Castle was founded in the early 13th century. This great keep largely survives, amid many later buildings - including the unusual double gatehouse and impressive 'Tower of League'. Both a formidable barrier against Scots invaders and a prestigious residence, the castle welcomed Edward I in 1300. A complex of passages and spiral stairways makes Brougham a fascinating castle to explore, as well as an ideal picnic setting for a family day out.

Eden is a unique and beautiful network of rivers, becks and lakes, stretching 80 miles from Hellgill Force to the Solway. Covering an impressive 850 square miles, it is the lifeblood of the area and it is under threat. Here at Eden Rivers Trust we have a vision for Saving the Eden and we need your help. Eden is your river to explore and it is up to all of us to work together to Save the Eden. We believe people have the power to save rivers and that individual actions add up to make a big difference.
