The Durham Chronicles: Bamburgh Castle

When one leaves Lindisfarne, and heads south, leaving all the mead you need behind….

and the St. Cuthbert Presbyterian Church on Holy Island….

and St. Oswald’s cross……

and the beautiful fields of rape-seed (not mustard as is often thought)…

The next major fortification down the coast heading south is Bamburgh Castle… a truly awesome structure.

To be honest, the outside of the castle is much more impressive in most respects than the inside.

There are however a few rooms that are impressive, for instance the King’s Great Feasting Hall…

And the armory…..

And no castle worth it’s salt should be without a rec room…

But of course if you lose, they put you in the dungeon….

without a get out of jail free card 🙂
