Bamburgh Castle
The northern side of Bamburgh Castle seen from the footpath leading down from the village to the beach. The 18th century windmill is prominent; corn ground by this mill was sold to local people from a shop in the castle at reasonable prices to alleviate hardship.
Bamburgh Castle

Bamburgh Castle sits on top of an outcrop of the Whin Sill. It has been a fortified location since the 5th century. The Normans built the first castle here. After the war of the roses the castle fell into disrepair. The building seen today is Victorian, built by the industrialist William Armstrong. The castle is privately owned but open to the public.
