The Forgotten Castles of Northumberland




ISBN 978-1-9997905-0-9

Northumberland, known as the “County of Castles,” has the legacy of centuries of border conflict within its landscape. There are many nationally famous castles which are open to visitors which all tell of the bloody history of this, England’s most northern county.


But there are castles which, while seemingly overshadowed by their more famous neighbours, have their own unique stories.

This book is about those ‘Forgotten Castles’, whose history has led them to be a little more neglected, but which each retain an atmosphere that more than compensates.


The book has 40 pages, with 34 images, all in colour. It is priced at £5.50. Post and packing is free in the UK.
