we have tried to visit this place on several occasions but it is invariably locked up with little or nothing to see. suspect it could be quite interesting if someone did a little work on it

Take the trail that goes along the river to the Roman bridge . Have something to eat and drink by the old mill and bridge than continue along the trail to the castle and enjoy the view.

Remains of a castle with plenty of space for kids to run around . Don't expect any of it to wow you but worth s visit if you are passing by.

Interesting point to stop off at but information boards etc are poorly maintained and you can take it all in in 20 minutes.
