  • You can make out clearly how this castle would have looked as there are a lot of ruins left. The tower looks like it could fall down at any minute, a great little castle to visit for an hour. 
  • 從阿因維克坐巴士過去其實不遠, 大概十分鐘就可到達. 巴士會停在公路旁, 離遠已經可以看見城堡. 地方其實不大, 但是是一個值得一看的遺址. 可順道看一下旁邊的小教堂. 巴士班次不多, 定必要先查好去程及回程的班次. 
  • Went to see the church, which lies nearby, and is a cracker, going way back in early Christianity, which this area does well. helpful in building up my knowledge of this period.

  • 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
