Tynemouth, UK, May 28, 2012 - Tynemouth Priory on the coast of North-East England on May 28, 2012. Once one of the largest fortified areas in England, this ancient building and the adjacent castle overlook the North Sea and the River Tyne.
Tynemouth Castle is located on a rocky headland (known as Pen Bal Crag), overlooking Tynemouth Pier. The moated castle-towers, gatehouse and keep are combined with the ruins of the Benedictine priory where early kings of Northumbria were buried. The coat of arms of the town of Tynemouth still includes three crowns commemorating the tradition that the Priory had been the burial place for three kings.
