Prudhoe Castle

Today we took the train out to Prudhoe to see the ruins of a medieval castle.

This was the view as we approached the castle. It has a pond and moat which surround the castle.

Before going into the castle, we had a walk around it first. The backc is surrounded by forests and a very steep hill, which would have helped in the fortification of the site.

The inside of the castle isn't very accessible because so much of it has crumbled but we had a quick wander around.

There is also an old mill on the site of the castle which dates from the 16th century and used to power the village of Prudhoe.
