Etell Castle, Northumberland
Engraver: Hill, I
Etal Castle was originally a tower on the border between England and Scotland. It was developed into a castle by Robert Manners when he received a licence to crenellate it in 1342. It was besieged by the Scots many times and was eventually destroyed in 1497 by the Scottish king, James IV. The ruins of the castle are a beautiful sight, with fragments of the great tower, gatehouse and walls remaining.
