CORBY CASTLE,
The seat of P. H. Howard, Esq. M.P. The building has been so much altered by the addition of two new fronts in Grecian style, as no longer to wear the appearance of a Castle. It stands upon the brink of a lofty precipice, overhanging the Eden, which is seen from the lawn in front flowing down with a divided stream, between two high banks profusely clothed with umbrageous woods, the village church and priory gateway of Wetheral crowning the western receding sides. The walks through the park carry the visitor for a mile along the edge of impending rocks, adorned with several noble specimens of oak, then turning down to the water's edge, bring him in a circuit back to the house. from a wooden seat about half-way in the

return, there is a romantic peep across the water, through an opening in the trees, of the cells of St. Constantine, ... From the Templetto, a small Grecian edifice, neatly fitted up, and the wall painted in fresco with Swiss scenery, is a rich view of the house at the extremity of a green vista, whose sward, shaven close and smooth, sweeps upward between ivy-clasped oaks, sycamores, noble pines, and majestic Scotch firs. Advancing by this mossy carpet, which stretches along the margin of the river, the magnificent bridge for the Railway greatly enriches the prospect, ... The walks that extend along the banks to the north of the Castle present superior views of Wetheral, but they are reserved for the private use of the family. The interior of the Castle is elegantly fitted up, and contains a collection of paintings. The grounds are open to strangers on Wednesdays only.

Corby in Wetheral parish, is now a modern mansion, seated on the brink of a stupendous cliff over-hanging the river Eden, and surrounded by well wooded hills, altogether forming a beautiful scene. It belonged once to Harcla earl of Carlisle, on whose attainder Edward II. granted it to sir Richard de Salkeld, knt. who sold it to the heirs of the Howards of Naworth. In one of the walls is the altar which Mr. Camden describes at Willoford or Burdoswald.

Corby, a Castle once the Seat of the ancient Family of the Salkelds, at present belonging to Mr. Howard, a Branch of the Duke of Norfolks' Family: The Building is of Stone, neat but plain. The Entrance to this House is by a large square Court-Yard. On the Right Hand are the Gardens, and on the Left the Offices for Servants and the Stables. It is plentifully watered by Springs in several large Reservoirs made about the House, which stands on the Precipice of a high Rock, which is in the back Part about 100 Feet high: In this Rock is cut a Regular Pair of Stairs of about six Feet wide, with all their Ornaments down to the Bottom; as you descend these Stairs, you pass by several Rooms hewn out of the Rock about 16 Feet square, which have no other Furniture than Tables and Seats made out of the Stone. At the Bottom of those Stairs you ascend another Pair about 10 Feet high, which leads to a Terrace made in Form of a Semicircle, by the Side of which runs the River Eden, having a Pair of Stairs to take Water at. The Terrace presents a fine View of another Part of the Rock, of equal Height with the former, from the Top of which falls a most wonderful curious Cascade, at last, an 100 Feet high, and the Water is broken by the pointed Ridges of the Rock into so many various Shapes, and the Springs fly about in so delightfully rude a Manner, as shews the great Power of Art in embellishing Nature; which is farther heighten'd by a natural Cascade, (effected by this artificial one,) of which there is a distinct Prospect at the Landing Stairs.
From hence there is another View of half a Mile long, of the River on the Right Hand: and a hanging Grove of Trees, just as Nature has plac'd them, on the Left. There is a small Banquetting-House at the End of a Gravel Walk with a Portico in front.

Slender Ionic columns to portico, reached by short flight of stone steps: rear wall of portico has three niches: frieze has inscription 'A quella che merita' (to her who merits it best), with balustraded balcony above, surmounted by pediment carrying carved Corby Lion.

courtesy of English Heritage
Cascade and summer house. Between 1708 and 1729 for Thomas Howard of Corby Castle. Red sandstone ashlar. Venetian summer house with cascade of 4 steps leading to oval pond, with terrace and river wall. Summer house consists of a shallow portico, with Venetian opening surmounted by carved figures of mermaids, Neptune and a lion. Between central columns is a dragon's head water spout and 3 headed lions at the sides. Inside are statues of draped male and female figures. Various arched steps (one of which has a grotto behind) form cascade beneath, falling about 10 metres to the pond, which formerly had a fountain in the centre, (see Buck's engraving of Wetheral Priory, 1739) but now has statue of Nelson. At the water's edge there is a retaining wall of sandstone, repaired with brick, with steps leading through an arched opening to form a water gate. Thomas Howard wrote plays which were enacted in the cascade, see Country Life, 7 January 1954, p.34.

STATUE OF POLYPHEMUS, CORBY CASTLE / / / WETHERAL / CARLISLE / CUMBRIA / II[star] / 77724 / NY4706654039
courtesy of English Heritage
Statue. Early C18 for Thomas Howard of Corby Castle. Carved red sandstone. 4 metres in height, figure of Polyphemus, holding staff in one hand and reed-pipes in the other. Pevsner describes it as "wondrously badly carved, but just for that reason very engaging". Of same date as cascade nearby (1708-1729) as Polyphemus is noted by Sir John Clerk of Penicuik, on a visit in 1734. A feature on riverside walk in the grounds of Corby Castle and included for G.V. with the nearby cascade. See; N. Pevsner, Buildings of England, 1967, Cumberland & Westmorland, W.A.J.

Interior of single room, walls of painted panels of Alpine scenes by Matthew Nutter of Carlisle, 1832, and painted roundel to ceiling.
