Bamburgh Castle

Sunrise lights up the walls of Bamburgh Castle on the Northumberland coast in the North East of England. The site was originally the location of a Celtic Brittonic fort known as Din Guarie and may have been the capital of the kingdom of Bernicia from its foundation in c. 420 to 547. After passing between the Britons and the Anglo-Saxons three times, the fort came under Anglo-Saxon control in 590. The fort was destroyed by Vikings in 993, and the Normans later built a new castle on the site, which forms the core of the present one. After a revolt in 1095 supported by the castle's owner, it became the property of the English monarch.

These vertical poles mark the safe route across the tidal sands and mud of the Pilgrims Way, the ancient crossing way from the English mainland to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne on the Northumbrian coast of North East England. Should you get caught out by the rising tide then the construction in the foreground is the emergency refuge where you can wait until the tides recede again.
