Notes: Ravensworth Castle is a ruined 14th-century castle in the village of Ravensworth, North Yorkshire, England. It has been designated a Grade I listed building by English Heritage. There may have been a castle at Ravensworth from Norman times, although the remaining parts of Ravensworth Castle date from the late 14th century, when it belonged to Henry, 1st Baron FitzHugh. In 1391 he enclosed 200 acres (81 ha) around the castle, creating a park. The castle started to be pulled down in the 16th century, and the stone was used for other buildings in the area. Ravensworth Castle and Park Wall were given a Grade I listed building designation by English Heritage on 4 February 1969. The Grade I listing is for buildings "of exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important". The castle and nearby earthworks have been designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
