"From the smooth green slopes we obtain wide and charming views, seaward and landward, with the winding banks and hanging woods of the Coquet, a sweet little river almost surrounding the castle." Extract from 'Studies From Nature'.
Warkworth Castle was built in the 12th century on the site of an Anglo-Saxon stronghold. In 1332 it became the main residence of the Earls of Northumberland, the Percys.
