The great red sandstone Herefordshire castle first built by the Normans, improved by William Marshall and the Earls of Pembroke and finally shot to pieces during the English Civil War:

Many ECW shot, shell and artefacts like caltrops have been found and are now on display. Also the home of 'Roaring Meg'.

Roaring Meg was covered for the winter when I was there but my video does feature one of her unexploded shells which was found during excavations. Numerous cast iron 9-pounder shot were also recovered.

Roaring Meg is here: link

I had a lot of material to work with on this subject and not all was used. I have posted more still photos on my Flickr profile here:


There is a Birds Eye view here:

A map here:

which may be of use to modellers.

The Roaring Meg mortar was covered for the winter but one of her unexploded mortar bombs was found during excavation and is shown here:

As always, a very nice tour. I am amazed at how many interesting places I missed on our Grand Tour in the '80s.
Thank you sir for filling in so many spaces.

Thank you. Britain has many interesting corners and even I have not seen them all yet. Happy to be of help.

Thank you. My video skills seem to be improving, especially with regard to the sound. I now have a studio mic and can either re-record bad sound or put dialogue onto my still photographs.
