Castle Howard. England. Although it looks like a castle, Howard is actually a stately home - a private residence of the Howard family that has resided in the complex for more than 300 years. The house, located in North Yorkshire, England, is one of the largest residences in Britain. Its construction commenced at the end of the 17th century and lasted around 15 years. by patrica

Bradgate House Ruins Thomas Grey, 2nd marquis of Dorset built Bradgate House with the likely completion date being 1520. This is one of the first unfortified great houses in England and one of the earliest post-Roman use of bricks. It was lived in by the Grey family for the next 220 years.The decline of the house started in the mid 18th century resulting in the ruins which are standing today. by tanya

Plenty of ghostly ruins have been photographed, but photos are easily faked and easier to dismiss. The world’s most-photographed phantom castle is Dounarwyse-a 13th century ruin on the Isle of Mull, Scotland. It’s said to appear like clockwork-so regularly it’s a simple matter to calculate a sighting. In daylight its nothing but a few crumbling bricks. Above:the most evocative shot of it ever taken, by Leszek Bujnowski."Hoax or Smoking Gun? by veronicawasp

~Crossraguel Abbey, Scotland. A Cluniac monastery founded in 1244 by Duncan, heir to the Earldom of Carrick. The extraordinary thing about Crossraguel is just how much of the site is still relatively intact; the extensive ruins include the church, chapterhouse, gatehouse, dovecot, cloister and a tall tower house which offers wonderful views over the site from the top. The founding monks came from Paisley Abbey, the only other Cluniac monastic by winnie
