Belford Castle
NU 103-340 Northumberland England

Belford Castle Belford Castle is a Norman earthwork motte and bailey fortress, which gave defence to a strong stone tower, by 1415. The low oval motte, now supports a 19th century Gothic farmhouse which absorbed, earlier foundations in its construction and to the south a large bailey can be traced by its wide surrounding ditch. The well, could be the original water supply and the design of the cobbles in the courtyard, compares with other Northumberland castles. 5 miles north is Fenham Tower and 6 miles east is Bamburgh Castle.
