Piel Castle stands on the South-Eastern point of Piel Island at the mouth of the deep-water  harbour of Barrow-in-Furness, guarding the passage to and from   Furness Abbey's holdings in Ireland and the Isle of Man.  The Abbot and convent were granted a licence to crenellate their dwelling-house in 1372 by   Edward III, which suggests the fortification of an existing building.
