One of Alnwick’s biggest features is, of course, Alnwick Castle. Now famous for a whole host of reasons, it is sometimes forgotten that the historic site has adapted and changed over the years.

Above is a picture taken in the castle’s kitchen, which at one time would have been a hive of activity. This is now part of the St Clouds State University and this kitchen as well as other parts of the castle are completely closed to the public. If you have any rare images of the castle and the grounds send them to us at michael.pearson@jpress.co.uk or via post.
