Interior of Naworth Castle, during the conflagration, 1844. 'By eight o'clock, the castle was burnt down, with the exception of the steward's residence on the western and a portion of Belted Willie's Tower on the eastern side of the quandrangle. The amount of property saved is more than might have been expected, but the damage done is altogether irreparable. Much of the magnificent tapestry has been consumed, and the stately halls are utterly destroyed. The regret and consternation which this disastrous fire has spread through the country cannot be described'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I.
