Artist's Description

The large tower on the North West corner of Barnard Castle in the town of the same name.
Barnard Castle sits on the north side of the River Tees, in Teesdale, County Durham, England.
The castle was founded by the Normans shortly after the conquest, but enjoyed its heyday under Bernard de Bailliol during the latter half of the 12th century.
The castle passed into the hands of the Balliol family (of which the Scottish king, John Balliol, was the most important member), and then into the possession of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick. King Richard III inherited it through his wife, Anne Neville, but it fell into ruins in the century after his death.
The remains are now in the care of English Heritage and are protected as a Grade 1 Listed Building (LBS Number 1218822).
