Tantallon Castle built in 1350 and consisting of one massive wall blocking off the headland. Tantallon was left in ruins after a siege during Oliver Cromwell’s invasion of Scotland in 1651 which led to 10 years of English occupation and rule. Cromwell’s Parliamentarian forces invaded Scotland, taking control of the south of the country after their victory at Dunbar in September 1650. In February 1651, Cromwell found his lines of communication under attack from a small group of 91 Royalists based at Tantallon. Cromwell’s retaliation was to send 2,000 to 3,000 troops under General Monck, together with much of the artillery he had in Scotland, and lay siege to Tantallon. After twelve days of bombardment with cannon a breach was made in the Douglas Tower. The defenders were compelled to surrender, but only after quarter had been granted to them in recognition of their bravery. East Lothian, Scotland.
The Perimeter is a labour of love: it’s taken 454 days of walking, hundreds of hours of planning and thousands of hours of editing. If you have the means, I’d appreciate your support by buying a print or contributing so I can continue to share the project with you.
