Very disappointing, nothing to see. Pile of old stones as a small part of a wall. Surrounding countryside makes for pleasant walks.

Always early out of bed while the rest is sleeping. So took the dog for a walk from the black horse inn to these ruins. Not much left but still a nice walk with nice views.
