I am glad to see a keep that survived all the bombardments of those numerous civil wars, and feuds over the last 800 years or so. Where is this castle located? If I recall correctly, Alnwick is in Northumbria, and was once the seat of the de Vesci family. But, that was also about 750 years ago. LOL!
Do you know the era of this keep's construction? I am unfamiliar with the period when hexagonal towers were constructed. Most castles I have seen used square towers prior to 1150 or so, then the circular tower became the common configuration.
At any rate, I love the angle of this shot. It really emphasizes the motte and bailey construction of it's Norman origins. The moody blue-grey coloration of the stonework in front of that blue sky, supported by that shock of green verge really makes all those browns in the masonry pop. I hope you have loads of castles and old buildings in your portfolio. I'm definitely following and faving this. :~}
The castle is located in northumbria in the town of Warkworth. The castle was first build after the Norman conquest, but it was only wooden when it was first constructed. The keep was constructed by Henry Percy, 1st Duke Of Northumberland around the late 14th Century. Thank you for the comments. There are a few more castles in my portfolio but not as many as I'd like But hopefully more in the future
