Walked the dog around the castle recently and it must be said the heritage trust along with their friends have really made this place a pleasure to visit. The fields were looked after and upkeep is great. Well worth a visit on a nice day.

I didn't even know about Codnor Castle till I was planning a walk in the area. It has a really interesting history and makes for a good walk in the area.
