NORTHUMBERLAND - PAGE 3 - (OCT 05)
This page is the last one showing photos from our week in Northumberland.
|Views of the ruins of Warkworth Castle in the care of English Heritage are shown above. The castle overlooks the village of Warkworth and the River Coquet, it dates from Norman times but fell into decline in the mid 16th century.|
|More views of Warkworth Castle above and on the right the beach at Low Newton, a small 18th century fishing village.|
|All three photos above show Lindisfarne Island also known as Holy Island. The Island is cut off by the tides and is only accessible via a causeway that is cut off twice in every 24 hours. The castle in the photos is Lindisfarne Castle owned by the National Trust, it was built in the 1550's. In the photo on the right you can see old fishing boats that have been recycled for use as work sheds.|
