  • Saw sign and followed, glad I did. A ruin but still worth a look. Visited the church next to it too, a beautiful stained glass window to be found. A good photographic place.  more »

  • We saw this castle ruin on a distance of the road. Could not resist to the happy times and the well marked exit to the ruins and the small church which is still in use. On a nice day you can come to your self and also delicious here still do a nice detour. And all free:)

  • A ruin in a picturesque setting. An interesting but unremarkable fortified manor dating back to the 12th century. Worth a visit on a fine day especially if visiting the nearby St John's church. Perimeter of the ruin can get boggy after rain so l suggest wearing appropiate footwear.
  • Interesting place to visit, lovely ruin, nice walk down the hill from the church. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting but unspectacular ruin of a fortified Manor house. The surrounding area is beautiful, including the small nearby church which is worth a visit too.
  • Beautiful, small ruins of a castle near a viaduct in a scenic valley. Free to visit.
  • At the end of a short lane lies the St John the Baptist Chapel, with a tiny parking area which would start to get crowded with 3-4 cars. Through a gate is a path, just short of 1/4 mile long which heads down to the ruined castle. A few information signs give background information about the castle. To the south is a stream which runs down to a nice view of an aquaduct. The path only serves the castle and so its a return journey straight back to the car. If your in the area this is well worth stopping off for a break to look at
