I wonder if I was thinking of this when I described Mark's house in Chronicles-we are very much alike.
I love the openness of the area on the sea side of the building and the fact the house is set in on a remote rocky outcrop is enticing too.
The museum is a two-storey long house, with the upper floor dedicated to the town's history going back to Roman times.
The wall on the right is the same as in the photo above.
This is the entrance to a disused chapel, the door in the photo is about 100 yards from the shed.
From the wall on the right to the outer wall on the left-not in the photo-it took me about fifteen minutes to walk across. The area is approximately 400 yards by 200 yards, as you can see there is no cover for an invading army.
Beyond the edge is a sandstone cliff, not sheer but close enough to make an assault virtually impossible. If you did get to the edge, before you get to the castle there is a 10 foot by 15 foot ditch to cross and the castle walls are about 15 feet high and stand on a mud bank of about 6 feet.
