Geography: Brough

Key points of interest in Brough, East Riding of Yorkshire, England. The place name ‘Brough’ is thought to have been evolved from the Olde English pre-7th century 'burh' meaning 'fortress' (Brough, 2012). In Gaelic the term ‘burh’ refers to a ‘fortified place’. The importance of Brough first emerged when it was used as the capital of the Celtic Parisi tribe, who inhabited the surrounding area around 150 B.C. During the Roman occupation of Brough, from about 70 AD, a fortress, covering about 4.5 acres, was built to protect the settlement. The town derives its name from that fortification (Cartoons.karoo.net, [s.d.]). Lady Anne Clifford, 14th Baroness de Clifford (1590–1676), after having been raised in a largely female-dominated household, went on to become a leading landowner of her time. In her diaries, which, together with her many letters, made her a leading literary personage in her own right, she wrote the following of the castle of Brough: “This Aprille [1659] after I had first bin there my selfe to direct the Building of it, did I cause my old decayed Castle of Brough to be repaired, and also the old Tower called the Roman Tower in the sayd Castle ...”.
