LINSTOCK, a township in Stanwix parish, Cumberland; on the river Eden, 2½ miles NE of Carlisle. Acres, 1,133. Real property, £1,789. Pop., 205. Houses, 45. Remains exist of Linstock Castle, which was a residence of the Bishops of Carlisle, and at which Bishop Halton received Edward I. Extensive remains exist also of Drawdykes Castle, part of which was rebuilt, in the 17th century, with stones from the Roman wall, by John Aglionby, Esq., recorder of Carlisle, who placed upon the battlements three remarkable strong busts, supposed to have been household gods of the Romans.
