Prudhoe Castle

  • Description

    "This 12th century stronghold of the D'Umfravilles and Percys was the seat of the barony of Prudhoe. It has a turbulent history and is famous as the only castle in the north of England never to be taken by the Scots. It has a moat, a fine gateway and a Georgian manor house built on the site of the medieval buildings. The chapel above the gateway contains the earliest known oriel window in England. Now an English Heritage property, it is a Grade I listed building. https://britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/101370476-prudhoe-castle-prudhoe#.W3biOExFw5s" Photo by G Laird, 2018.
