Gleaston  Lancashire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Gleaston like this:

GLEASTON, a division of Aldingham parish, Lancashire; 2½ miles SE of Dalton. Gleaston Castle here is the ruin of a baronial strength, which appears to have been both large and strong, and which is now reduced to three towers, with connecting walls. The castle belonged to the Flemings, and to the Duke of Suffolk, the father of Lady Jane Grey.
