Special Interest

Set in the charming village of Etal by a ford over the River Till, this Northumberland castle is more important that the current ruins imply. Built by Robert Manners as a defence against Scots raiders in the mid 14th century, it fell to James IV's invading Scots army in 1513, immediately before their catastrophic defeat at nearby Flodden.

The award-winning exhibition outlines the interesting story of the bloody Anglo-Scottish warfare of this border castle. And as the Flodden Battlefields are only a short distance away, visiting the two sites makes for a perfect day out.
