SCALEBY, Cumberland

"Is bounded on the north-east by Kirklinton and Irthington, on the north-west by Kirklinton, on the south-west by Stanwix and on the south-east by Irthington and Crosby-upon-Eden. Lengthwise the parish extends about five miles, but its average breadth is little more than one mile. It is divided into the townships of Scaleby East and Scaleby West, whose united area is about 3,464 acres."

In 1307, Robert de Tilliol received the King's license to convert his manor house into a castle which has been considerably modernized by subsequent restorations.
