This image shows Edlingham Castle which is situated near Rothbury, in Northumberland. The building dates back to the 12th Century and was inhabited until 1650 by which time it began to decay.
The decay took hold for a further 357 years and yet the broken castle ruins still stand today, fractured but full of intrigue and character.
The ragged stonework, the slightly skewed vertical towers, the structural support designed to save sections of the castle from complete collapse, along with the heavy sky, shown in this image, add to the sense that the castle, although torn hangs on for dear life.
