Located at Craven Arms, in South Shropshire, and built in the 13th century Stokesay is the oldest fortified manor house in England.

I have a weakness for stairs, so I took this image from inside the main hall, which is located inside the turreted section of the high round castle structure.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    i love the stairs going into the darkness offset by the almost halo’s coming from the edges.,

  • Walking through this place was mind blowing.
    Every sound was echoed. And with so much history lurking
    all over it, the feeling was brilliant.
