Unusually the 13th century Keep is set on the side of the mound that the Castle was built on. The mound that the Castle sits on is a rocky natural mound
This great tower was an impressive four-storey apartment block, which stood at least 28 meters (90 feet high). The building provided luxury accommodation, the grandest rooms were on the top floor.
You certainly get some impressive views from the Castle.
It always amazes me at the precarious angels some of the old ruins manage to stand at, it does make you wonder how much longer they can possibly remain.
Here you can see some of the earthworks.
In the center of this shot you can see a bridge that takes you over the River Clun and back to the town.
Before the Castle was built there was a small Saxon settlement at Clun, this was expanded and the layout was altered during the 12th Century. You can see part of Clun in the background, tucked behind the Bowls Club, what lovely surroundings for a game of bowls.
This is a lovely stone bridge in the Town that spans the River Clun, the bridge dates from the 1450's.
