So, we have just been into the "new" Scotney Castle and enjoyed that, so now we will take a walk through the garden and have a look at the "old" Scotney Castle.
Wow! This is nice!
I have come across the moated Castle that was built between 1378 - 1380. The water was so calm, and the reflection's were lovely, this is a stunning part of the garden.
The Old Castle is described as a "fortified house with towers in each corner." Unfortunately, by 1558, only one Tower remained. In 1580 the south wing was rebuilt in Elizabethan architecture style, and around 1630, the eastern range was rebuilt. Some of the eastern range was partly dismantled on the completion of the new house in 1843, and was left as a ruin for a garden feature, I think this makes the area extra nice.
No wonder they call this one of the most Romantic garden's in England!
