While this mainly castle website is being developed, please continue to brows.

Apart from the ‘New Look’, Roy is adding more historical information in the form of separate introductions to each of the castles. Also, he is  adding more pictures but deleting others which seem irrelevant.

This will be on-going as additional pictures are taken and more castle building information comes to light.
