Dunstanburgh Castle - Northumberland - August 2023

  • Description

    Dunstanburgh Castle is a ruined medieval fortress located on the coast of Northumberland, England. The castle is situated on a remote headland, overlooking the North Sea and offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It is one of the most iconic and imposing castles in Northumberland. The castle was built in the 14th century by Thomas, the Earl of Lancaster, for defensive purposes during the turbulent times of the Wars of Scottish Independence. It was intended to be a symbol of the earl's power and control over the region. The castle had a strategic location, as it guarded the coast and controlled access to nearby harbors. Over the centuries, Dunstanburgh Castle changed hands several times and played a role in various conflicts and sieges. It was partially destroyed during the Wars of the Roses in the 15th century and was eventually abandoned and left to ruin. Today, the castle is managed by English Heritage and is open to the public. It offers visitors the opportunity to explore the atmospheric ruins and discover its rich history. The castle's extensive remains include the gatehouse, curtain walls, towers, and the impressive Great Keep, which stands mostly intact. Music is by Trevor Kowalski and track is called Gold Among the Sand. #epidemicsound Editing done on Filmora12
