“In the early period of the commonwealth (1649), Clitheroe castle was dismantled by order of Parliament; the chapel has totally disappeared, and nothing now remains of the ancient edifice but the square keep, and some portions of the strong wall by which the whole was surrounded. Within the precincts of the castle, a handsome castellated house has been built, as the residence of the steward of the honor, who administers the affairs of one of the largest royalties in the kingdom, extending over the whole of the Hundred of Blackburn, part of the Hundred of Salford, and the liberty of Bowland, and the manor of Slaidburn, in Yorkshire.
