Tattershall Castle 1/5

Tattershall Castle is a castle in Tattershall, Lincolnshire, about 12 miles (19 km) north east of Sleaford. It is in the care of the National Trust. Tattershall Castle has its origins in either a stone castle or a fortified manor house, built by Robert de Tattershall in 1231. This was largely rebuilt in brick, and greatly expanded, by Ralph, 3rd Lord Cromwell, Treasurer of England, between 1430 and 1450.

It does look like a proper castle! I love the wooden railings!
Brian Walbey: This is the only bit left of a much larger building.
It looks small for a castle, Brian, as you say, more a fortified manor house.

Superbe composition avec ce petit pont. J'aime la couleur de la pierre du château.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martine.

Your opening shot has me excited to see more, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Then see more you shall Ray.
I would imagine that this made a very comfortable fortified home Brian.
Brian Walbey: This is the only bit left of a much larger building. Some shots of the not quite so comfortable inside at the end of the week.
A castle that is/becomes a manor house...that's a story, Brian. Can you imagine living in that???

In a way, it reminds of the Tower. Obviously a lot less visitors smile
Brian Walbey: This is the only bit left of a much larger building. The main castle parts are now in ruins, although the moat is still there.

A fine lead-in to this. The castle looks very compact.

What a lovely name for a Castle, too, Brian!
Brian Walbey: It's in the centre of a lovely little village of the same name. (If you get time to glance back to last week you will find I have tried out a few cathedral shots more in your style than my usual one.)
I would call this a castle. I wonder if any of England's treasury was used here.

This looks Royal and what a way to get there. LOVE the shadows and the POV. Wonderful picture, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, it's a shame the outer parts of the castle are now in ruins or have gone.
