Vote for your favourite Northumberland castle

The Gazette launches a major new series today by asking readers to vote for their favourite Northumberland castle.

The county is renowned for its iconic fortresses and there are plenty of them – but which is your most-loved? Do you enjoy visiting one above all others? Is it the view that has captured your heart or do you enjoy exploring inside?

Let us know your opinions through social media (Facebook and Twitter) and we’ll include some of your comments in the paper.

We have drawn up a shortlist of 15 castles from which we are asking you to select your favourite.

And voting couldn’t be easier – follow the link below or pick up a copy of the Morpeth Herald, fill in the voting form and send it in to the Northumberland Gazette office at 32 Bondgate Without, Alnwick Northumberland NE66 1PN.

Vote for your top 10 castles here.

This is part of a major new series to compile Northumberland’s Top 10 in a number of categories.

The county has many amazing attractions and must-see places and the Northumberland Gazette, Berwick Advertiser, Morpeth Herald and News Post Leader aims to gauge opinions on its highlights and discover which ones are the most popular.

For the next two weeks and then monthly after that, we will present a new topic and ask you to vote for your favourite. Castles is just the start!

Next week, we are visiting the coast for Northumberland’s Top 10 ... beaches. Send us your suggestions for a shortlist of the best beaches in the county – and there are some crackers – either by email morpeth.herald@jpress.co.uk, Facebook, Herald Facebook page. or upload them directly through this website.

The following week, the subject is views and again we’d like your input. Use the same addresses to send pictures of your special view in the county.

The series will continue until the end of the year when we will publish the complete guide to Northumberland’s Top 10.
