Castle Climbing Centre

Amanda Iwin's Castle Climbing Centre is a reminder of just how crazy the Victorians were.

Only built in 1856, but based on a French mediaeval castle - what better structure to house a pumping station. Or indeed from 1995 an indoor climbing centre. Pity about the indoor bit. We'd love to see an Olympic sport made of castle climbing complete with boiling oil and siege engines...
