Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I have recently posted a couple of photographs of Dunstanburgh Castle which show the castle almost friendly, as it is visited by tourists.

Here, what a difference; the castle looks wild and windswept, yet it is the same castle, on the same day but recorded from a different aspect in b&w.

The castle stands on a headland between Beadnell and Craster and was the largest castle in Northumberland. It was built by Earl Thomas of Lancaster between 1313 and 1322, taking advantage of the site's natural defences and the existing earthworks of a former Iron Age fort. The castle also served as a statement of the earl's wealth and influence, and would have invited comparisons with the neighbouring royal castle of Bamburgh.

I will post the coloured version as w/s.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
