Dunstanburgh Castle on the Northumbrian coast

  • Description

    "The ruins of the castle sit impressively and impassively under brooding skies. The castle fell into decay after it was captured by Yorkist forces during the War of the Roses. It is surprising that such an impressive scale of fortification was not even partially rebuilt afterwards. Its ruined battlements now sit as a striking and depressing reminder that wars have been raging century upon century as long as history can trace, and will continue to do so as long as humans remain on this planet."
