Myself and my daughter went to Wroxeter Roman Ruins before we decided to come here. It was a little hard to find, but when you know where you are going it's a beautiful find. Walking through the gate and then through the woods to then see the castle. We spent around 30 minutes here, looked around, listen to the birds and just chilled. It was a lovely find. It has a nice peaceful atmosphere to it.
Historic place linked to chancellor of UK and king also Robert E Lee family. 13th century house shell beautifully kept. Home of Robert Burnell. 1224 or thereabouts.
