WARKWORTH HERMITAGE, NORTHUMBERLAND
"Warkworth Hermitage is situated about half a mile above the Castle, on the brink of the Coquet River. This venerable retreat is probably the best preserved the most entire work of its kind now remaining in the kingdom. It contains 3 apartments all of them formed by excavation of the solid rock, and intends over the River closed in a rich mantle of ancient trees, remains of the venerable woods which in olden times sheltered the inmates of this romantic solitude. The chapel is 18 feet in length by about 7 1/2 in width and height and is beautifully modelled in the Gothic style of architecture "
Not mentioned here, but the original hermit was Sir Bertram of Bothal, who supposedly after accidentally killing his wife and brother, gave away all his stuff and went to live in a cave (legend has it to be accidental, but it seems that Bertram's Mrs was in the process of running off with his brother) – but others believe this to be mere fabrication, as the Bertram of this time had no brother SleekburnC.
