Portland Castle

Of course no holiday for us would be complete without visiting a castle, and while we had plans to visit three in Devon it was Portland Castle in Dorset which ended up being the only one we saw.

Portland was built by Henry VIII and is still in tact. While Hubby and I decided that it could be made into a good home, we also decided that its situation wasn’t that great. It is in a great place for a castle built low with very thick rounded walls to make it harder to hit, but it is overlooked, and who would want a castle that the proletariat could see into?
