  • Good for 20 minute detour. Not a great deal to see but it's free, quiet, and quite interesting to see what's left.
  • Walked this area so many times-around the "leaning"edllingham castle-into the11/12 century church-delightful wooded valley with the trackbed & viaduct of the now disused 1885 built rail line alnwick to scots border at cornhill.
  • Great place, no closing time and free parking and admission.
  • Great free place to visit
  • A ruin in a picturesque setting. An interesting but unremarkable fortified manor dating back to the 12th century. Worth a visit on a fine day especially if visiting the nearby St John's church. Perimeter of the ruin can get boggy after rain so l suggest wearing appropiate footwear.
