I went for a 4 day jaunt round Northumbria, took photos mostly of castles, since there are quite a few round there, also a lot of beautiful unspoilt coastal views and what have you 🙂 I shall label some of these to give an idea of what they are.
Edit: Hmm, added some descriptions to the photos but they didn’t stick, so I’m just going to type something vague here, first theres the giant “Angel of the North” sculpture seen from the main north road – then the campsite, and some photos from the bay overlooking Lindisfarne, (or Holy Island) the Bamburgh Castle, followed by Alnwick castle, ( a Harry Potter film location, hence the children flying brooms etc) There’s a lot of fountains there, and a poison garden.
Next castle on the list was Chillingham, which was odd, it was in ruins, but this antique dealer guy bought it, did it up and filled it with antiques, so its an odd mix of disparate objects!
Next castle is Dunstanburgh, a ruin, but got the best photos of the lot, as the location was stunning and good light – I climbed over the gat to get in, as got there late!
Final castle was Warkworth, a semi ruin, nice place with a lot of interesting info to read and look at.
