Warkworth Castle, Northumberland

Here are a few shots of Warkworth Castle, a 12th century medieval ruin located on a hill above the river Coquet in Northumberland.  Once home to the powerful Percy family, who now reside not too far away in Alnwick Castle, Warkworth is one of the largest and most impressive fortresses in North East England.   It was once home to ‘Harry Hotspur’, a valiant and significant knight of the Anglo-Scottish wars of the day.  Unfortunately the castle was not open during our visit so an amble around the exterior was the best we could do.
