Cliffs on the south side of Bamburgh Castle
Cliffs on the south side of Bamburgh Castle
Niches have been excavated in the sandstone outcrop at the base of the cliff. Wooden seating was probably located in that on the left. Carved steps lead up to the platform around the shallow niche which houses the War Memorial. Above the sandstone can be seen the weathered dolerite of the Great Whin Sill, the bulk of which supports the magnificent Castle. There is a flag flying on the top of the Norman great tower. Inside the tower is the head of one of the castle's earliest wells, started in Anglo-Saxon times. It was cut through the hard dolerite 45m deep into the lower sandstone.
