The Bowes Museum 2
Streatlam Castle: Rediscover The Home Of John And Joséphine Bowes
25.11.17 — 11.03.18Exhibition
On 29 March 1959 the remains of Streatlam Castle vanished in a series of huge explosions. That exercise completed, only a pile of rubble remained to tell of the house and castle that had stood on the site for over 600 years, 500 of those in the ownership of the Bowes family. And yet... not every trace had been erased.
