The remains of a fortified manor house, also known as Newton Kyme Castle, in the grounds of Newton Kyme Hall. Above ground all that can be seen is a well preserved thick wall 35 feet in length and 10 feet high, but other remains are preserved beneath the surrounding gardens. The manor may have been founded by the de Kymes in the 13th century and fortified in the 14th century by the Talbot family. The manor house was given to Thomas Fairfax after the Civil War in the 17th century.
