    "The earliest known owner of the Manor of Lamplugh was William de Lancaster, Baron of Kendal who gave it, with Workington, in exchange for Middleton in Lonsdale to one Gospatric, son of Orme, Lord of Seaton. Gospatric left it to his son Thomas who gave it to one Robert who thereafter took his name from the Manor. The estate remained with the Lamplugh family up until 1919 when it was auctioned

    The manor house, Lamplugh Hall is still extant, save for a substantial peel tower erected after the ravages of Robert the Bruce, which was apparently demolished in 1820 to provide building stone!

    The house is largely hidden from the casual observer by some modern farm buildings, but the imposing stone archway, visable from the road opposite the Parish Church, cannot be missed. Through the arch one may see the Great Hall, the walls of which date from the fourteenth century, and where in medieval times the business of the estate was carried out, and where many of the househeld ate and slept."
