G.T. Clark, when discussing 'Medieval defences of the English border' stated 'of lesser strongholds were... Haltcliffe'. He gave no reference for this assumption.
Bewley showed that Thomas Bewley bought from John Salkeld of Threapland in 1641, 'a freehold house and lands of Haltcliffe' which he then rebuilt.
Listed Building Report shows that the house is of 1653 and no reason to consider it as fortified. Why did Clark consider it so? (Perriam and Robinson 1998)
