High Lovelady Shield Bastle
NY 759-460 Cumbria England
High Lovelady Shield Bastle is a small medieval pele tower, which was absorbed in the complex alterations of a substantial, 17th century stone two storey defensible farmhouse. At the front of the tower, a ground floor mullioned window has a 1691 datestone and on the southern gable is a steeply-pitched heather thatch roof line, with a 1720 datestone on a doorhead to the rear. 2 miles north-west is Blagill Bastle.
High Lovelady Shield Bastle is located east of Alston, off the A689. 23 miles north-east of Penrith, on the A686-A689.
The site is visible from the public footpath, which passes the bastle from the road.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
