Naturally we climbed it.
We got to the top but couldn't see what it was that was being kept.
But there was a good view from the top.
A good place to keep a watchful eye on the loose dog from.
It has an impressive history stretching back to the Norman Conquest. Pretty well all the kings and queens of England have owned or stayed here at some point - plus a French king who was kept prisoner for a while. Possibly payback for the time when they laid siege to the castle. Chaucer kept the books here once, and when it was granted to one chancellor, apparently he got so excited when he first spotted it that he fell off his horse and got trampled to death by the monk following behind him. Yeah, we think that sounds a bit suspicious too. That monk must have had enormous feet.
Anyway, enough of the exploring.
Our ears are cold, we've had enough and we want to go home now.
Which way is it?
