There are considered to be over 70 castle sites in Northumberland and while we have many of the finest in England others are ruins and some no longer exist.

A few are in private hands and not open to the public so it was only with the owners permission that I was able to do them some justice. Others are in the care of English Heritage or The National Trust and one way or another I have tried to show them here. I offer the pictures in this website as a taste of the rich legacy of the history of our county.
