Castle Page

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 may be that only with the owners permission will I be able to do them justice. Others are in the care of English Heritage or The National Trust and one way or another I will try to show them here. I offer the pictures in this website as a taste of the rich legacy of the history of our county. This site plans to offer images of all the Castle sites in Northumberland.

My intention is to picture Northumberland's Castles, show them as they are now and leave the fine detail to others. Philip Davis' superb website "The Gatehouse" and Mike Salter's book, The Castles and Tower Houses of Northumberland (Folly Publications 1997), Borderland Castles and Peles by Robert Hugill (1939), Castles of Northumberland by B. Long (1967) and The Castles of Northumberland by Frank Graham (1976) are quoted in the histories offered on the individual Castle pages I have picked their brains as to where the castles are, or were, and what one might now expect to find. I do not intend to cover Towers, Forts, Bastles and Keeps of which there are many, the sites in this list are known as Castles. N.M.April 2007 With many thanks to Mr. Philip Davis for permission to use the considerable "Gatehouse" archive.
