photoblog image The Great Hall at Bamburgh

The Great Hall at Bamburgh

 

The magnificant false Hammerbeam Roof in the Great or Kings Hall of Bamburgh Castle.

 

The Kings Hall was reconstructed in the late 19th century by Lord Armstrong, although retains original medieval arches under the minstrels gallery. The roof of the hall was carved from teak, 300 tons of it, by Thomas Worsnop of Rothbury.
