Norham Castle


Well worth a visit. This free entry ruined castle is situated right on the Tweed but on the English side, just over a small one way bridge from the Borders. Apparently built by the Prince Bishops of Durham the castle is impressive even in ruin, showing walls over 20ft thick and a still standing central tower. The castle overlooked a well known Tweed ford, the first ford from the ocean.
