Location :- Warkworth Castle, Northumberland
(I know this is Wordless Wednesday…but here are a few notes on Warkworth)
Warkworth Castle has been in the ownership of the Percy Family, more formally the Dukes of Northumberland, since the 11th century. Originally a wooden structure, but in troubled times proved impractical, despite a high defensive position.
So it was replaced in the 13th century with a solid stone construction. What you can fine today is a square outer wall with look out towers on each side and central to all this very solid Central Keep.
Apart from playing an important strategic role over the passing years, it was also a popular retreat for leisure in peaceful times.
The Castle is now in the care of English Heritage
We too must take care….
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
