Warkworth Castle, Northumberland 2005

Dramatically sited on raised ground by a twist in the River Coquet. Warkworth Castle dates back to the mid twelfth century, when the original motte and bailey construction was built by Earl Henry of Northumberland, son of David 1st King of Scots.

The castle is most associated with the Percys’, one of the most powerful families in the land, who acquired it in 1332 and added the Great Keep in the 14 century.

There must be a hundred different viewpoints of this magnificent castle, but I couldn’t resist the most striking and iconic view of all for this drawing.
