The sparse ruins of Pendragon Castle, perched on a grassy motte north of Outhgill in Mallerstang Dale. The oldest remains date from the twelfth century. Legend has it that Uther Pendragon, father of King Arthur, died here when a well was poisoned. The infant River Eden flows beyond the castle along the floor of a valley which originally was part of Westmorland. Mallerstang Dale might soon fall within the expanding Yorkshire Dales National Park.
