The Ruins of Farleigh Hungerford Castle 1 of Many

 

This model is what the castle looked like in c. 1600... now let's have a look around the grounds over the next few weeks.

They certainly did a good job with that model.
Who of is isn't fond of castles, Peter! To see them in an aerial view makes them even more special, of course. It'll be a good series, I'm sure.

Interesting Peter - although I live nearby I have never seen a model of what it used to look like before
We went here with Lisl too Peter. It is a great place to visit isn't it?

I remember that Lisl wanted to show me this castle, too, but we didn't have enough time - now I can enjoy this place by your photos- fine!

Not somewhere that I've been to so I will enjoy this series. Was the aerial view taken from Chris' helicopter? wink

I must admit to preferring the ruin and look forward to seeing the photos.

Les vieilles ruines des chateaux anglais ont un charme fou, j'ai beaucoup aimé toutes celles que j'ai vues en Ecosse par exemple et celui-là devait être très beau au temps de sa gloire. Bisous Peter et Penny

They should claim the insurance money and rebuild it Peter.
Nice comparison you made here Peter
