Castle... at Blithfield

Blithfield Hall

Blithfield Hall
is often described as one of the "oldest castles in England" though it's clearly been restored and built upon many times.  The turreted towers do contribute to the castle description.

It is one of the stops on the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, when the dancers travel from site to site during the course of one day.

    1. I'm not sure if it is open to the public that often. This photo was taken on the Horn Dance Day, as the dancers were about to call in to the hall. The public are allowed into the grounds for a couple of hours on that occasion to observe the dance taking place.
      I'll have to check if it is ever open to the public other times.
