Ogle Castle

Ogle Castle (grid reference NZ14057908) is a former fortified manor house at Ogle, near Whalton, Northumberland. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Grade I listed building.

The moated site on the bank of the Ogle Burn presents the remains of a medieval tower incorporated into a 16th century manor. Licence to crenellate the manor was granted to Robert Ogle in 1341.

William the Conqueror granted a deed to Humphrey de Hoggell (Ogle) to enjoy "all the liberties and royalties of his manor" after the conquest. The Ogle family held the estate from before the Norman Conquest until 1597 when it passed by marriage to the Cavendish family and later to Hollis.
