Aydon Castle Pic

Aydon Castle is a fortified manor house in Northumbria, England. Construction of a stone building to replace the original wooden structure was begun in 1296. Walls and other fortifications were added beginning in 1305 at the outbreak of Anglo-Scottish warefare.

The castle consists of a "C" shaped building surrounding a small walled inner courtyard. Originally, another walled courtyard was attached at the west, and a curtain wall with a gate house and three towers surrounded a larger outer courtyard to the north.

My reconstruction of Aydon Castle is 25 inches long, 20 inches wide (80 x 64 studs) and is about 14 inches high.
