No big deal, it's just a beautifully-preserved medieval castle. To clarify: it is a big deal. The castle was possibly built by Godric of Mappestone, and stands on a high rocky sandstone outcrop overlooking the River Wye. With views of the countryside and a heck of a lot of history on offer, visitors can learn about the past and then sit down with a cuppa in the cafe.
