Snowdrop time at Etal Castle

22nd February, 2019

Snowdrop time at Etal Castle

Etal Castle, Northumberland was built around 1340. It had strategic importance in the border wars with Scotland. Just before the Battle of Flodden in 1513, the castle was briefly captured by the Scottish King James IV.

Today the castle lies in ruins but there is enough to see to make a visit worthwhile. Open to the public for most of the year, their is an additional historic exhibition hosted by English Heritage.

In medieval times the castle was surrounded by a manor which included corn and filing mills, limekilns and coal mines. Nowadays the castle is situated in a quiet and picturesque village boasting a newly refurbished Black Bull pub and Lavender Tea Rooms.

Satnav for Etal Castle is TD12 4TN.
