Rothley Crags

Landscape In Morpeth, Northumberland

Spectacular crags in beautiful countryside, with a castle on top!

My three favourite words beginning with the letter C have to be Castles, Crags and Countryside and Rothley has all these in abundance. When visiting Rothley Castle we found that it was also set in some amazing crags.

Cue me running around for the next 2 hours like a loon taking loads of photos.

Hard to imagine that what you are looking at is 300 million years old!

The area is managed by the National Trust and is part of the Wallington Estate, but you don't need to be a member to visit here.

And here is a picture of Rothley Castle.

I honestly tried to limit the number of photos, but I think I took over a hundred shots in total! Promise this is the last picture and it's not even a crag.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
