My latest blog with some pictures of Castle Rising in Norfolk.
Links to the WOTR are a bit tenuous but the Castle is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

That looks like a great place to wander around.

Visited there years ago. I agree it was well worth the trip. If I recall correctly, the ruin next to the pic is the remains of an old chapel/church.

Great post, thank you.

There was a great little occult shop in Denver by the name of Castle Rising.

Col Durnford, I assume that you mean Denver, Colorado, and not Denver in Norfolk … which is less than twenty miles from Castle Rising.

Yes, it was in Colorado.

The castle is about 14 miles from me.
The church nearby is also worth a visit as it is Saxo/early Norman in parts and is as old as the castle.

There has been a suggestion that the outer earthworks of the castle may be an Iron Age earthwork, reused by the Romans (?) and that the Normans plopped their ring work and stone keep into the middle creating the two detached earthworks we see today.

"Denver in Norfolk"

That casts a whole new light on 'Things to do in Denver when your dead'….
