'Alnwick Castle'....We visited this place for the first time a couple of days ago...A great experience strolling through the massive gardens and castle...It belongs to the Duke of Northumberland.. (Whom, I was honoured to meet one time, when doing my walking stick craft)..he is a patron of the local Stick Guild)

An imposing castle with its ramparts and all. I wonder how much it costs the Duke to maintain gardens and all this.

Evidently, the Dukes still live in a custom above us mere mortals Owd Timer.
That sure is a sprawling estate. We have towns smaller then that!
Great shot and I like how the grasses blend with the castle in coloring.

That's a good view of this awesome estate. A beautiful sky to go along with it. Nice shot Bob.

Love this shot Bob! Love to see the castles of your land. There are times I wish walls could talk and tell of the times they have seen.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

With a few exceptions, they don't build them like this in the states.
