Pevensey Castle....Built by the Romans in the 3rd Century, was in use during WW2. It was fitted out as strong point and many heavy machine gun slits were cut into the walls. The court yards also held Radar and anti Aircraft Batteries

I understand what you mean...
It's quite impressive to walk around in the fortress/castle I work inside now.

Nice, eh?? 8)
Very nice, Redleg. I remember our discussion about Quisling. Interesting that you work in the very place he was executed.

As for my experiences with castles, they have been many. Many of my Scottish ancestors had them and I have visited those. I think though I liked the castles in Germany the most. Just my taste and nothing critical. Redleg's Akershus reminds me of many of the German castles I've seen. My favorite of those is Neuschwanstein Castle. Here's a picture of it though you've probably seen it a million times before.

Did you know Vermont has its own castle? Wilson Castle in Proctor is quite a nice place.

A great picture Charge, but I would hate the job of repainting the castle white every few years.

Not much left of that one...

Is it "Hastings Castle" like in "the Battle of Hastings"??
