Clitheroe Castle (Clitheroe)

Clitheroe Castle is a small castle at the Lancashire market town of Clitheroe.

Constructed in the Norman period and first mentioned in 1102, it belonged to Roger de Poitou, son of the powerful Roger de Montgomery, to guard the River Ribble.

It was one of the smallest castles in England.

Today only the little keep remains, on its limestone knoll, together with a short length of wall.

Beside the remains of the castle is the Clitheroe Castle Museum.
