Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland.
Dunstanburgh Castle was built from 1313 by the Baron Earl Thomas of Lancaster, at a time of tension between himself and King Edward 11.
The Earl failed to reach the castle when his rebellion was defeated and he was executed in 1322. John of Gaunt took control of the castle band strengthened it against Scottish attack, later the castle became the focus of attack from Yorkist forces twice during the War of the Roses and subsequently fell into ruin.
