Manorbier Castle

Manorbier Castle, should've used my polariser!

Less about the weather now…it’s cold and grey here at the moment anyhow…so I thought I’d post a couple of summer photos I took when visiting some local landmarks with my girlfriend, ever patient that she is.

There are a number of castles dotted around the county, apparently 51 in total (inclusive of some ruins and forts that you’d walk by without noticing I dare say) but this one is Manorbier Castle taken last summer. A lovely position right by a beach probably accounts for most visitors but it is annoying for those of us who live in the county, that you can only visit in Summer when families abound and parking doesn’t. However, this was one of the more pleasant we’ve been to mainly due to the gorgeous sympathetic planting inside the walls. Not sure if this was a recent addition but fantastic nonetheless. Enjoy the pictures, if you fancy knowing more, please go to

However, if you want to be visiting all 51, the list and details can be found at the following address…  …. and I wish you the very best of luck!
