Photographer's Note

Bamburgh has been an important defensive site for hundreds of years. The castle is largely medieval but by the early 18th century was in ruins. It was bought by Lord Crewe, the Bishop of Durham who left the castle in his will to charity. In 1757 Dr Sharpe, the trustee of the charity began restoration and the castle was made inhabitable again.

This windmill was built at the west end of the castle and was used to grind corn to sell to the poor at special low prices.
