Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster, Northumberland

Dunstanburgh Castle stands on a headland on the coast of Northumberland between the villages of Craster and Embleton. The headland is part of a geological formation known as the Great Whin Sill. Construction of the castle began in 1313 by Earl Thomas of Lancaster and later improved by John of Gaunt. The structure was damaged during the Wars of the Roses and fell into decay. It was painted by Turner on many occasions.
