1st visit to Calshot Castle for a while which is situated right at the start of Southampton Water. There has been more historical displays added inside since my last visit. Really interesting history and building. The Castle closed for lunch on arrival once open had to wait for member of staff to appear who was out the back making a cup of tea. Perhaps it is HCC management but the site lacks the English Heritage touch I am seeing at other sites. -perhaps it was me. - Come on English Heritage staff the fort rather than just unlock it and take the money.
The area around the castle is worth the stroll - sea views including shipping movements- Calshot tower - old sea plane slip way - life boat station and views of Fawley Power Station.
