  • Not to much to see then a load full of bricks. If you try hard enough you maybe can imagine how it was in yesteryear. If you are already there go and see it. It is not worth to make a de-tour  more »

  • +JMJ. Historical places! Love it. Yet another very beautifully maintained historical site seen during my May 1984 visit to British friends. This UK locale transported me to a sightseers Heaven. My reviews of my travels are all going to be personal meaning that I really can not image how my review will encourage anyone to visit the places I have visited. Yet, I am submitting reviews anyway. Anyone who loves to travel, loves history will enjoy every place visited because their heart says this is the place for me!
  • Nice ruins and the old courtyard walls have mostly gone which makes it an ideal spot for a picnic with spectacular views over the valley. You can't go into the castle as it's gates are locked but there isn't much left save for a few towers. In any case it's a good little spot of history.
  • Great local historic building. Fantastic views of Newbury. Lots of free parking and great circular walks in the surrounding area.
  • A lovely historic building which is open to the public. Car parking is available. It stirs your imagination to see the remains of this ancient building.
  • This is a beautiful place to walk up to, at any time of the day. Very local and the view of Newbury is amazing, once you get to the top. Very children friendly, as they can play on the rocky walls, and run around on the field. :-) It would be hard for wheelchairs to get up the hill though.
