The description below is taken from Tupling, G.H. (editor), 1949, South Lancasird in the reign of Edward II:

For four days the ... forces ... harried Lancaster and its neighbourhood. The property of the burgesses was looted, their dwellings and the castle were destroyed by fire. Only the priory and the house of the Preaching Friars were spared destruction." At Skerton, the whole village was burnt and the corn in the fields trampled down ; at Torrisholme, Halton, Carnforth, and Warton, scores of the inhabitants were driven from their devastated homes.
