Kyme Castle Newton Kyme
SE 466-449 Yorkshire England

Kyme Castle Kyme Castle is a 13th century manor house, founded by the de Kyme family. Standing on a raised river terrace to the south of the River Wharfe, in the 14th century the Talbot family fortified the stone manor house. All that remains is a fragment of rubble built wall orientated north to south, with western returns at both ends. The wall of two phases with late 18th to early 19th century alterations, contains a pointed archway and a first floor lancet window. A square headed window serving as a memorial in St Andrews churchyard, may have originated from the castle. 2 miles south-east is Tadcaster Castle and 5 miles north-west is Wetherby Castle.
