Photos of Northumberland - Twizel Bridge, Castle and River Till.
These photos were taken at Twizel Bridge, Castle and the River Till in North Northumberland.
Twizel Bridge was of significant strategic importance in the nearby Battle of Flodden in 1513 as the English Army used it to Cross the River Till with their Artillery while other troops crossed at fords further upstream.

The "new" bridge at Twizel carries the main road from Berwick to Cornhill.
It sits right next to the old bridge.

Apart from the tarmac surface it is easy to let your mind imagine scenes from centuries ago.

The existing ruin is in fact a house built in the 18th century but never finished.
