Raby Castle, County Durham, England

This evening, I am focusing on Raby Castle in N.E.England, about 20 miles (32 km) S.W. of the city of Durham.

TheĀ castle was incepted in the 11th century but the substance of theĀ current building dates from the late 14th century under ownership of John Neville of the powerful Neville family.
