What else is there to do on a Sunday afternoon other than visit an abandoned, ruined castle?
I've blogged about this castle numerous times (how it was reprised during Edward III's reign in order to keep an eye on the Thames estuary (something that historians now reject), how it could've been a trysting location for him and a certain Miss Perrers, but I never tire of talking about it or of visiting it. Essex is one of those counties that doesn't have many castles (ruinous or not), so it is great when we both find the time (and when the weather is good), to drive down and have a good walk about and explore :)

We've got a busy week next week as we're seeing The Pigeon Detectives in Camden on Wednesday, vising the Computer History Museum on Thursday, and are seeing Beauty & the Beast on Friday - cannot wait!
