Clitheroe Castle, Lancashire

Clitheroe Castle was built in the motte and bailey style and stands on a limestone outcrop dominating the town. The castle has one of the smallest keeps in the country and is thought to have been built around 1186. Legend has it that the large hole which can be seen in the side of the keep was the result of the Devil hurling a boulder from nearby Pendle Hill. In truth the damage was ordered by the government in 1649 to put the castle out of commission.

A strong image with a saturated sky caught well complete with the flag of St.George. Thanks for the details too David. This quality image is a very welcome addition to POE.

Very sharp detail enhances this architectural shot. The absence of visitors cluttering up the view adds to the attractiveness. Thanks also for the interesting narrative.
