Warwick Castle

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Warwick Castle is situated in the town of Warwick, on a sandstone bluff at a bend of the River Avon. The river, which runs below the castle on the east side, has eroded the rock the castle stands on, forming a cliff. The river and cliff form natural defences. When construction began in 1068, four houses belonging to the Abbot of Coventry were demolished to provide room. The castle's position made it strategically important in safeguarding the Midlands against rebellion.

Hi Gabe,I know this medieval castle very well.

I lived in Warwickshire for a large part of my Early years.

Warwick Castle original built by William the Conqueror in 1068.....2 years after the Norman conquest of England.(The Battle of Hastings 1066}

Therefore I have no hesitation in Voting for it in the current contest, plus awarding a Y*,

Best wishes from France.

Amitiés Ray
