Thanks Cuffy - you're a darling!

Isn't it beautiful?
So remote and aloof.....
I just about fell in love with the place.........but my pics do it no justice I'm afraid..........need a big fancy digital camera......

the staircase is so strange..........it looks new, not hundreds of years old, and the rooms upstairs are nearly in-tact! You can see huge fireplaces and all the beautiful stone-masonry around the windows....

That stairwell looks genuinely creepy.   And that's by daylight. scared.gif

Hammy, is the poor friend you dragged along, the same friend with the farty dog, who went on the other `over-the-fence' escapade?  I take it she's not as fearless as you?

I think this place was briefly feature on local TV 2-3 years ago. Would be very atmospheric at twilight.

Ghosts and castles go together like..um..brides and chests (wooden, that is).

If Hammy's mystery castle is the one I think it is,  wink2.gif   here's a brief mention of it's ghost.

She was a lady in the English civil war, who, along with a few servants, held out for weeks against her besiegers, before finally being overpowered.  She was later executed for war crimes.

Her ghost is said to haunt the ruins.  At twilight, she wanders from the ruins to the nearby lake.

A rear view of the ruin:
