Blaise Castle's Castle, Bristol,uk by 

Blaise Castle Estate, Bristol,uk this estate was just across the road from me, with the castle perched up on the hill, what could any little girl ask for to have this estate as a playground, this is where my ashes will be once my time comes, hope you see the magic of it too. fujifilm finepix j10 used.

Blaise castle’s castle was built in 1788, its called a folly as it was built over 200 odd years after the medieval times, its an exact replica of another castle, but done a lot smaller, and still could be used for protection, the lord of this estate was a romantic and built it for his lady, and yes they were still bad times back then, this estate was left to the people of Bristol and cannot be sold, there are people known as the friends of Blaise who see to its upkeep alongside the local council, the castle is fully restored on the outside and they are hoping to restore inside,

The actor Jason Connery, sean connery’s son filmed the TV series Robin Hood there, well all the outside shots anyway.

Hope you enjoyed the story of my childhood, hee hee some here at home think I have not grown up, i am nearly 50 years old and a top archer, who used to horseride, and I still do medieval battle re inactments for the public, I was always a bit of a tom boy lol dawn

    Beautiful capture, wondrous castle, gorgeous place. Is this actually the keep of the Castle?

  • this was built as a folly but a very very old one, the lord of the manor had a romantic streak and built this for his wife so glad you like it, this whole estate is where I played as a little girl, it had everything except a knight in shining armour lol dawn

    May your ashes be caught up by the wind and seat your reconstituted form high above upon the battlement where you may look away from the cares of this ol’ plagued world of ills and pains! Meantime ….rock on, Thou, Muse of art and photo-world! ~; -) tjc
