Bamburgh, Northumberland

 Bamburgh can be viewed as the wealthy neighbour to Seahouses just a short distance to the south. Dominated by the Castle it is also a magnet for tourists. Fortunately the beach is right beside the castle and with many miles of golden sand there is no risk of being overcrowded there.

 Coming into Bamburgh from Wooler and Chatton this is the view as you enter Bamburgh. The shops and cafes are on the right with the Castle and cricket green below it a little further on.

This photograph has captured nicely the sheer size of the Castle and its positioning from the village green. The castle was saved from neglect and decay by Lord Armstrong of Cragside.So sometimes the money from arnaments can indeed provide good and a lasting heritage.
