Haltwhistle Bastle 2
NY 708-641 Northumberland England

Haltwhistle Bastle House 2Haltwhistle Bastle 2 was originally a 16th or 17th century rectangular stone two storey defensible farmhouse. The bastle has been incorporated in a two bay, two storey house, with a covered alleyway. Cast-iron pillars, now supports the heavy first floor wall and in the alleyway, the massive stones of its boulder plinth, can still be seen. The strong walls, with a removable stair up to the living quarters and a ground floor for stores and their livestock, provided a shelter from the cross-border reivers, until help arrived. Nearby are Haltwhistle Castle, Haltwhistle Tower and Haltwhistle Bastle 1 & 3-5.
