Travelling down the moorland road from Alnwick at twilight, I suddenly saw the castle ruins nestling in the beautiful valley - and, despite the late hour, I knew I had to visit! Luckily, it's an open site with good explanatory boards charting the history and development of the building. To get to the Castle, you walk passed the charming 11th century church of St. John the Baptist - again, it was open and I enjoyed the simplicity of the interior.
