Warkworth Castle
Warkworth Castle
Warkworth Castle, Northumberland England
Near Amble. Warkworth Castle sits atop
a green hill overlooking the River Coquet.
It was the Percy family home. Featured
in Shakespeare's Henry V.  The first 
castle was built in the  12th century
and every century after that
has left it's mark.
Warkworth is said to be haunted by a grey lady,
believed to be the ghost of Margaret Neville,
wife of the first Earl of Northumberland.
The wine cellars below were also used as
an overflow prison, leaving some visitors
to feel an uncanny presence.

The Mistake
The Mistake (Filtered)
This photograph is not altered in Photoshop.
When I shoot black and white film, I put
a colored filter over the lens to help
with contrast and lighting. My asst.
put the orange b/w filter on my 
color camera body. After shooting 2 frames
I realized what he did and was upset.
Then, I got the negative back and said 
"I like this". 
It is, a one of Kind, Mistake

Nunney Castle
Nunney Castle
Nunney was built in 1393 by Sir John Delamere.
Although built by the De La Mare family, the castle
and the half manor passed onto the Prater family,
who were catholics and royalist. This last fact was 
to bring about the demise of this prestigious 
building, as in 1645 the parliamentarians considered
it's presence of a sufficient threat that the 
castle was laid siege to and finally slighted after capture. 
Although the Prater family recovered the property from 
Charles II some years later, it was not lived in again nor
repaired. Most of the castles north west collapsed in 
1910 and the remains of this once fine building were
used as kennels for dogs, just prior to 1926. 
Soon after this date the remains were placed in the hands
of the Ministry of Works who undertook extensive work to
remove the years of vegetation growth and unblock
the silted moat.
