Visited on a sunny day and really enjoyed it. not much of the castle left but what is there is amazing. The way around the grounds has been made easy by the addition of a wooden path. Definitely visit if in the area

Well worth a visit. Notices around the castle ruins explain the history well. Views over the river and beyond from the castle are stunning.

Ruin of an old Roman fort. Not really much to see but the location is gorgeous and is well worth a visit. There is a beautiful church on the grounds that dates back to 900AD with Tudor and Victorian extensions.

Hi If you walk northwards along station road then walk down to the river and continue to walk north you will arrive at the fort in about half an hour.
