Piel Castle, also known as Fouldry Castle or the Pile of Fouldray, is a castle situated on the south-eastern point of Piel Island, off the coast of the Furness Peninsula in Cumbria.
The castle was built in the early-14th century by John Cockerham, the Abbot of neighbouring Furness Abbey andwas intended to oversea the trade through the local harbour and to protect against Scottish raids – guess it’s not working very well now as I am Scottish and now live not that far up the road from it, although admittedly I infiltrated via the A590 rather than the sea!
The original watercolour painting is 500mm x 330mm and is available either framed or unframed.
