1. RIBER 1390 Riber Castle SK 3059 5/43 22.6.50. SK 35 NW 7/43 II 2. 1868. Built by John Smedley. A large castellated mansion, the nucleus having square 3-storeyed towers at the angles, and the site enclosed by battlemented curtain-walls with out-towers. Late in date arid pure pastiche, it may be regarded as a mammoth folly. It is a well-known landmark, crowning a height, and from a distance has character. Unoccupied and ruinous.

Please note that the inclusion of a listed building on this website does not mean it is open to the public.
