We are delighted to offer this unique Special Edition print of Ogle Castle in the village of Ogle in the English county of Northumberland. The illustration is by the Dutch artist Abraham Van Diepenbeeck (15961675) and was originally engraved by the Flemish painter Peter Tillemans (16841734) around 1724. It shows the Castle as it stood just after the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, during the reign of King Charles II.
Included with each print sold is an Ogle family tree, plus a short history of the origins of the Ogle family and a history of the Castle itself.
