Raglan Castle is not so much a castle more a fortified palatial residence….. well that’s what the guide book says.
It looks like a castle to my untrained eye.
The guide book also says it was one of the last medieval castles to be constructed, which is probably why quite a lot of it is still there.
We did an after Christmas visit to get some fresh air and get off our backsides. It was a nice bright blue day but also quite crisp. Grandson Theo had sort of remembered what I said before we left when we got there declared that this was an evil castle.
I did not take that many Grandchildren photos, was more into getting some ‘clever’ shots…. Naughty Grandad.
There were one or two places where a shaft of light produced some interesting effects but the photos were not that spectacular, this is my best effort.
There was a resident Pied Wagtail and I took lots of photos of him….. Naughty Grandad.
They also had a quiz thing going on and this arrangement of old books was part of that, Felix spent most of his time trying to crack the code which completed the quiz……Naughty Papa.
