Last Outing of 2011: Dunhill Castle & Graveyard

On Thursday last, more than 20 members and friends gathered at the bridge on the Anne river to meet up with Julian Walton. Little did we know that far from being a stroll in the park, it would turn out to be a rock climbing experience!
We did make it to the top however, and tried to imagine the castle in its heydays, when the Anne river was fully navigable, and later in less favorable times, when it was besieged by Cromwellian soldiers.

We discovered a small medieval graveyard and parish church, the whole staircase of the church having collapsed spectacularly in one block.
