Wark Castle
Early 12th century, rebuilt 1153-6, extended later Motte-and-bailey castle holding the Southern bank of the Tweed, with a huge keep, 75x50m on the motte. Wark's royal artillery left in 1633 after centuries of royal military activity, and the site was left to nature. (Source: Borders and Berwick, An Architectural Guide by Charles Alexander Strang)
