Pembroke Castle

We had a morning visit to Pembroke Castle whilst on holiday in Pembrokeshire a few weeks ago and this is a shot of a couple of the many towers.  The whole castle is in very good condition and it is possible to walk almost all the way round the ramparts.

Unusually this castle is run by a private trust and not the nation, and details of this can be found at http://www.pembroke-castle.co.uk/ . It really is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

This brings us up to the weekend once again so enjoy yourselves everyone, we are away to relatives in the Horsham area until Monday so will try and catch up with one and all after that.

Brian Walbey: Lol! Hope your wife never saw this comment Bill! Thanks for your comment, we had a lovely weekend with family at a 60th.Party down in West Sussex, mind you the M25 was a right bxxxxr on the way there!
One of the great welsh castles Brian, and if I remember correctly there are a couple of nice tableaux inside the towers. If those stones could only talk.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I reckon these stones could tell a few stories also. Yes there are two very good tableaux in two of the different towers.
Very nice indeed. B&W suits the mood.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pat, I always feel that old places like this look better mono.
