Photo Tour of Norham Castle, Northumberland, England

I visited Northam Castle in North Northumberland on a Sunday morning in April 2011. It’s managed by English Heritage and is free to enter. Do check on their site before heading to the castle as opening days vary through the year.  The castle was originally built to defend a ford over the River Tweed which forms the Anglo Scottish border.

Norham Castle is an atmospheric site in a beautiful location. So, do visit in you’re in the border country which I call Scengland. I also recommend visiting the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Union Bridge.
