Notes:

There has been a settlement here for at Bamborough for hundreds of years; a castle was mentioned here in the year 547, but was probably over 100 years old even then. That castle was destroyed by Vikings in the 10th century but it was rebuilt by the conquering Normans some time after 1066.

The modern spelling is “Bamburgh.”
