Lowther Castle

One of the oldest arms-bearing families in the country, the Lowthers trace their origins back to Dolfin, descendant of a Viking settler, who arrived here in 1150. It was Dolfin who is said to have named the river Lowth-a (foaming water) – hence the family name. 


Three principal dwellings have come and gone since that first settlement and today, the Estate is presided over by the ruined Lowther Castle – a Gothic building completed in 1812, deroofed in 1957 and today, a thriving and prize-winning visitor attraction. Displayways were Commissioned by Jim Lowther to produce all graphics, wallpapers, signage, banners and wayfinding throughout the visitor centre.
