A brief history of BamburghA brief history of Bamburgh

Visionary creator, industrialist, and giver William George Armstrong purchased Bamburgh Castle in 1894. He set about changing it into his vision of the prototype manor. The mansion houses an interesting assortment of craftsmanship, pottery, and objects d'art that Armstrong cherished and brought him satisfaction. The castle was also occupied by the Anglo- Saxons who were drawn by its nature. Bamburgh Castle was home to many famous monarchs and monks such as Henry the third, Edward the first, second and third and was used as a prison, and a hosting place. By the beginning of the fifteenth century, Bamburgh stayed perhaps the most majestic forts in Britain, an image of power and strength. In any case, in 1463, England was in a position of disturbance. Common conflict, the supposed 'Battles of the Roses' divided the land between the Yorkists and the Lancastrians. Before 1462 Bamburgh had been a Lancastrian fortification, supporting the ousted King Henry VI and his wife. During mid-1462, Margaret and Henry had cruised down from Scotland with military and involved the deliberately significant mansion, yet it did not last. Lord Edward IV, the Yorkist ruler, walked north with his power to drive the Lancastrians out of Northumberland.
