Cockermouth Castle causes concern as it appears to be balancing on the banks of the river.
The December floods washed away large parts of the embankment beneath it.
The owners are assessing the damage.
Three bridges in west Cumbria which had been closed following the devastating floods last month have reopened.
Ouse Bridge at Bassenthwaite, Broughton High Bridge and Gote Bridge in Cockermouth have all been declared safe.
Homeowners and businesses in Cockermouth say they are relieved the bridge has escaped any serious damage and that the town is reconnected once more.
"I think it is a really significant part of the recovery.
"The town is doing very well but we needed to join up the parts of the town that have been separated.
"Gote Bridge opening up has been a fantastic step in that direction. It means that people who live in Papcastle and the Gote can have easy access to the town. It also getting the traffic moving again."

They're going through a really big rebuilding stage throughout the whole town so it's nice to know I've been able to put a few smiles on some faces who have probably had a tougher time that I am out here."
