DescriptionThe Lion Tower. Above the arch the Percy lion wears a collar displaying the family war-cry 'Esperaunce' (hope). The castle and town of Warkworth occupy a naturally fortified site in a loop of the river Coquet, less than a mile from the Northumberland coast. The castle developed around two main elements – a high artificial mound, or motte, and a fortified enclosure, or bailey. A hermitage for a priest lies nearby in the surrounding park. The great tower of Warkworth Castle was commissioned by Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, in 1377.
