I always enjoy your photos-- never yet having left the U.S. (and living predominantly on the West Coast), I appreciate borrowing your eyes when you go adventuring. I've met trees older almost than history itself, but I've seen very little dating earlier than the late 1800s as far as architecture goes. Images like these-- I don't know that I can wrap my head around all that history. The top picture you've posted here in particular is a punch to the gut, and I don't quite know why. Maybe because it looks less ruined, less part of a picturesque landscape, and more like someone ought to be walking down those steps on their way to dinner.

Thank you for sharing.

Re: Wow.

Warkworth Castle is only slightly ruined- all the walls are sound- and it wouldn't take much to make it habitable again. Of course many houses of that period are lived in. Falkland Palace, which I featured a few posts back, was restored and refurbished in the 19th century- and very cosy it is too.
