On our way back from Ludlow, we stopped at Stokesay Castle. It was 4pm and they were closing, so we only got to see it from outside. But still the sights are beautiful and fun to think we are standing in front of our second castle of the day.
Stokesay Castle built in the 13th century, starting the contstruction around 1285. Owned by Laurence of Ludlow, a leading wool merchant from that time who wanted it to be a secure, private house. His family owned the castle until the 16th century.
Next to the castle, there is a church and the cemetery.
All this history. I feel lucky to be able to stand there and see it with our own eyes.
The castle is on this road. And though most of the roads we took were paved, they were almost as wide as these ones. I love how unique and calm and quiet it feels.
