Sherborne Castle from Sherborne Old Castle
Sherborne Castle from Sherborne Old Castle
A view from the Old Castle, across the crenellated southern wall, lake and lawn to the northern fašade of Sherborne Castle. Sir Walter Raleigh was given the lease to the Old Castle by Queen Elizabeth 1st (when it was the only castle) but rather than renovate it he had the new "castle" built on the site of a former hunting lodge in the grounds. The Old Castle is now owned by English Heritage and public admission to the Old Castle is separate from admission to the "new" castle.
