"An Englishman's home is his castle", so they say. Well, I've included my 'castle' in this shot, which was taken from the walls of Bolingbroke Castle.
There are plans LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) to clear out the moat, at a cost of 40,000, which used to be more than ninety feet across. When the castle was demolished the moat was filled in and it silted up to form a marshy weed-filled area, which is inhabited by waterfowl.
