The ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle stand out against the beautiful Northumberland coastline
The Earl of Lancaster began the fortress in 1313 but archeological research has found that it was much grander than first thought and was possibly built as a symbol against the king than a military stronghold.
This view was taken as I walked South along the coast.
The following day I walked along the coast from the opposite direction towards the castle.
The remains of the Gatehouse keep. The twin towered gatehouse was the main residential block, four stories high.
