Photographer's Note

Good Morning Friends,

Please click here, to see a larger, sharper view of the photograph.

This is Warkworth Castle entrance. When it was serving a defensive purpose, there would have had a large drawbridge to cover the gap across the moat. Now, there is a permanent bridge to allow easy access to the many visitors.

It is possible to see the effective use of the moat. At one time, it would have been considerably deeper than this and probably filled with water.

To discover the history of the castle, please see my previous post here or if you would like much more information, there is a wonderful 'Teacher's Pack' here which not only details the complete history of the castle but, also, supplies cross-curricular advice.

I will add a second photograph, as a w/s, to show the opposite view of the castle, its walls and keep.

I wish you a happy week, Bev :-)
