Ford, Ford Castle c.1950

More about this scene


Caption for Ford, Ford Castle C1950: Along with Etal, Ford Castle once formed a second line of defence against the Scots; the front line consisted of the fortresses at Wark, Berwick and Norham. Ford was built as a manor house by William Heron in 1338, but it was quickly raised in status to a castle. By 1367 Ford had been integrated into English defence planning for the North. The present castle dates mainly from the 1860s, though the north and south-west towers are original.
