    Warkworth castle in Northumberland, England.

    Above the River Coquet. Look out for the lion badge carved throughout the castle as you explore. This was the badge of the powerful Percy family who wielded almost kingly power in the north.

    I feel like you may have more castle pics?

    So I was going for a walk earlier and came across this huge really cool slug (finger for scale)
    And I noticed it had a hole in the side of its head. Had a Google to find out what it was and turns out it's a nose which can be opened and closed at will.

    That is a very interesting looking slug! 🤓😀

    Went back to the castle today. Didn't have my kid with me so figured I'd get a better look around and bought a tour book.
    Here's some mediaeval graffiti, depicting the crucifixion and some severed heads.

    I always go down a rabbit hole when I research this castle. So much has happened to it.

    Cool! Such brutal times back then 😱

    The graffiti above was from the inside window in the grey mares tail tower.

    Which is this thing. The markings were inside the window with the metal grid cover.

    It had several floors, you can see where the floor boards wpuld have been and it had a couple of fire places built into the walls.
    They say they're not sure where it got it's name from but next to it was a stable so my guess is that they named it that because of the stable next door?
    Would make sense

    Grey Mare's Tail | National Trust for Scotland and Loch Skeen in Scotland. As you know this castle bordered Scotland. And the Percy Family had a lot of influence in the North. Also, the castle is also almost parallel and on the opposite side of the island as the water fall. So that, plus the stables, plus the color of the tower, and maybe someone being punny may be how they named it.
