Came across this castle as a bonus on a circular walk from Bradford upon Avon. Its in a lovely location. The walls/ ramparts are limited but it has a good display in attached buildings with a great chapel. Don't forget the crypt!

If you wish to have the answer before you go down their telephone number is 01225 754026 and they will tell you
If the colour of the spine is because you already have a copy then it may be worth taking that anyway - the history will be the same - nothing has been added that you could not get from the audio guide
