"Serum Castle" Salisbury Off The Beaten Path Tip by Lifestyles

  Serum Castle
by Lifestyles

Sometimes in the evenings during the summer, I like to wander over with my bike towards Serum Castle. In the evening it is very peaceful with scenic views from the hill towards the Cathedral, & the surrounding village of Stratford.

There are some hidden path's & grassy mounds to sit on, the only company being crowds of rabbits who have burrows in the hillside & the occasional sheep in the field. There isn't a fence round the moat, my cousin fell into it once when coming back from the pub. A man fell into the dungeon once, when trying to steal from the till. He wasn't found until the next morning; minus white hair from the fright!

Serum is a good place to walk the dog, wierd figures have been seen on the battlements & there are ledgends of ghosts. Some say the nights are the scariest, the only knights I know are the one's in armour & dustbins on thire heads when they have shows.
