Old Hollinside Manor

About

Hollinside Manor is an excellent example of a 13th century fortified manor house situated just east of the Nine Arches Viaduct in the Derwent Walk Country Park. From its elevated position, there are commanding views of the surrounding countryside. It was the home of the Harding family for two centuries during which time the manor became known as the 'Giant's Castle' since the men folk were very tall.

The estate passed on to George Bowes of Gibside in 1730 for the sum of £10,000. The remains, which are both a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade I Listed, include a ruined fortified hall house, an attached wing to the north east and associated earthworks.
