Colchester Castle


Colchester Castle is currently closed for a complete refit, reopening in spring 2014. During the closure, they reopened the empty castle  for a few days for people to come and see the inside of the building all stripped back. I haven’t been to Colchester since I was a child and have been meaning to visit for ages, so this was the perfect opportunity to visit (with my Lensbaby fisheye optic in tow).

I think my personal highlight was the prison cells – see below for some pictures (on more than one occasion prisoners escaped because bits of the building collapsed). Also, another treat for those who, like me, like bricks.
