Is it a sort of supersized Folly, Brian?
Brian Walbey: Far from it Ray, there are a lot of outbuildings in ruins and a proper moat.

a really English castle - and a giftshop! (a funny word for German ears for 'gift' means 'poison' in our language).
Brian Walbey: Yes very castle looking isn't it. Remind me if I ever come to Germany again not to ask for a 'gift' smile

A real solid brick structure, well I suppose it's brick..
Brian Walbey: Yes it is brick Chris, and a very solid building.
I love the wooden bridge way
Brian Walbey: The bridge is crossing what was once the moat around the castle.
A wonderful perspective to this solid structure Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I took pictures from all angles, don't know yet which ones to include in the series proper.

Love the red of the bricks and the paler stone work outlining the details, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think the person who had this built was a very rich person, hence the lovely design.
Oh nice find Brian. I love that one
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, it is opposite the church I posted a picture of last week behind the tree branches.
I love the shape of this castle. Nice composition, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Very castle looking isn't it. I took pictures from all angles, don't know yet which ones to include in the series proper
Not too many brick castles Brian.
Brian Walbey: No there isn't Chad.

It has the look of a folly rather than a castle. Perhaps it was the home of some eccentric English gentleman who has ideas beyond his station?
Brian Walbey: Definitely a castle Alan, the early parts dating back many centuries to one of the Cromwells.

Looks like a very interesting place.
Brian Walbey: It is Hollie, 194 steps to the top of the towers, we decided we were a little too old for that!
