Newer stonework on top of the more ancient wall dating to the 11th or 12th century.

The "Greens" where soldiers were drilled long ago.

A spontanious reaction to being there.

This picture does not do justice to how beautiful it was when the sun broke through the clouds.

Whitney's very own castle, until the next child climbed up.

Below the castle, near the merchants is this Robin Hood courtyard.

Of course, the very ancient stonework is on the bottom, being preserved by the newer stonework above. Whitney reading the graffiti.

One of the bronze statues, Maid Marian and Robin Hood.

The bottom was Robin's bow and his arrow shaft has been worn by the many tourists touching it. Normally, this area is packed with people but due to the time of the year, temperatures and time of day we were almost alone. The plaques along the wall tell the story of Robin Hood.
