Stokesay Castle

Located in Shropshire, a few miles north of Ludlow on the A49. The pictures in this section were taken on a visit to the castle last year. I was prompted to go by a photograph of the Gatehouse taken by George Fowler Jones in the 19th-century, which was posted by a relative of GFJ from the Chile branch of the family on Flickr, here. Being not many miles from Cheltenham where my daughters live, it was an easy drive into the border country.
