Warkworth Castle and Hermitage
Warkworth, Northumberland, UK
Cross-shaped keep of Warkworth, crowning a hilltop rising steeply above the River Coquet. Still roofed and almost complete, the uniquely-planned keep dates mainly from the end of the 14th century. It presides over the extensive remains of a great hall, chapel, fine gatehouse and a virtually intact circuit of towered walls.
Half a mile from the castle, accessible only by boat, stands a much more peaceful building: the late medieval cave Hermitage and chapel of a solitary holy man.
