Etal Castle residential tower
Etal Castle residential tower
A ruined medieval fortification in the village of Etal. It was built around 1341 by Robert Manners, and comprised a residential tower, a gatehouse and a corner tower, protected by a curtain wall. The castle was involved both in local feuding and the border wars between England and Scotland.
Has since been quarried for its stone.
A pair of Goldfinches were foraging on the grass.
