it is still a majestic building Tom... it's good that they raised a new roof was to preserve what is left of the ruins....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Yes, National Trust spent a lot of money on it and it only re-opened last year.
This looks interesting, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Something that is not quite a ruin smile

One rather likes that balcony, Tom...a place where one could have run dodging the falling masonry.
Tom Wilson: Probably had trumpeters to welcome guests smile
Very cool, isn't it! Nice capture, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth
Quite an impressive height here Tom!
Tom Wilson: It was obviously a fine building internally, Richard.

Tom Wilson: Yes, NT spent a lot of money on making it so.

I have just Googled this to find out more, Tom
Tom Wilson: Worth a visit if you are ever in Northumberland!
Looks like good work has been done here by NT
Tom Wilson: Indeed, Martin - just getting the roof on must have taken some work!
Not a derelict prison then Tom?
Tom Wilson: Before the fire it was used for a time during the war - but by our lot, not by prisoners smile
sure worth spending a couple of hours exploring this place, Tom. i like this shot a lot
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.
Are the NT still working on the house tom, or is this how they are going to leave it?
Tom Wilson: I think they are still working, Brian, but I guess it all depends on funds.

It;s still impressive, regardless. I guess the roff is to stop any further deterioration. I like the iron balustrade.
Tom Wilson: Yes - there was a TV programme about it last year.
The skeletal remains, perhaps?
Tom Wilson: Well, a bit more than a skeleton smile
