Yes, I have Angela. The castle extends a long way back but shooting it 'front on' would include all the visitors cars & IMO spoil the image.

Seems an imposing figure in this perspective. Notice the long windows, right. Is this the chapel or great hall? I am not familiar with castles. I only know them from movies. No moat or walls seems strange. The rear seems a bit vulnerable. With the banner flying does that mean it is still held by the noble family? Lots of questions, I know.

I don't make a claim to be an authority on castles Bob, we have so many in County Durham & Northumberland, which is my area, it's mind boggling. The pic is of one side of the castle, the front, which does have a moat & the rear which stands at the top of very steep land are better defended. Additions to all castles were made by each generation & were based on the political situation of the time, for example war or peace. Oh, It's the Northumbrian flag. If you would like to know more about this particular castle I've posted a link for you.
