1 review of the lost castle in English
The castle is thought to date back to the 13th centuary,it used to look over the river Don.It was built in 1270 by Thomas Lrd Furvival & once held Mary queen of Scots for 14 years from 1570 by George Talbot(the 6th Earl of Shrewsbury)
The demolition of the castle was done by the roundheads in1648 & now most of the ruins lay underneath the current castle market,you can stand next to one of the remaining parts of a wall to get a feel of what it was like,there are leaflets you are given & booklets you can purchase cheap enough showing artists impressions of the castle,so once you see where this part of the wall etc was you get a good image of it all.You also get to listen to a tape telling all its history & it sure would be nice if they got around to unburrying the rest of the ruins for us all to see
Visits to the lost castle are free on thursdays & saturdays
