Proceeded on to Warkworth Castle, in (you’ll never guess) Warkworth. Good value, as we got a two for one ticket from English Heritage from the first cottage. The keep was very intact and good to explore – great sense of atmosphere, with ground and first floor. Pied wagtails, carrion crows.
Note: there is a house martins nest in the doorway of cottage. Young must have fledged but keep returning and flying back and forth.
