    Isn't this a magnificent fortress? Just think how difficult it must have been to build.

    reat pictures. I visited once a few years ago, but only the outside. The grandchildren were studying the Normans so we decided to take them and they had a whale of a time . I hadn't realised how many time periods are to be seen inside the castle. Well worth the visit.
