Warkworth Castle is a ruined medieval building in Northumberland. The original timber castle was strengthened by Edward II due to the outbreak of the Anglo-Scottish Wars in 1319. The imposing and unique cross shaped keep overlooking the village of Warkworth was added in the late 14th century to create one of the largest, strongest and most impressive fortresses in Northumberland. Still roofed and almost complete, it presides over extensive remains of a great hall, chapel, fine gatehouse and a virtually intact circuit of towered walls.
