Brinklow Castle



A sketch from the top of Brinklow Castle, walking distance* from my house. Warwickshire is mostly  flat, so there’s an spectacular 360 degree view from the top of the castle mound. It was a windy day and that’s reflected in the sketch, but not in the photo I took from the top.

Brinklow Castle is beyond the “small wall” stage of archaeology, it used to be a burial mound and I’m sure that someone’s dug it up at some stage but in modern times there’s nothing but some grass covered mounds and picnic tables. My archaeological knowledge is sketchy but I assume that the picnic tables are from a later date.

.*quite a long walking distance!
