Castle Roof

While up at Cholmondeley Castle earlier this year and exploring the castle I found my way to the roof, I couldn’t resist checking it out and grabbing a few shots.

Even way up here the attention to detail is amazing.



A row of chimneys gives you an idea how they kept the castle warm though out the winter months, before central heating.



A closer look reveals each chimney is numbered so as to aid in diagnostics if one or more become blocked.



Have a great weekend.

  8. Always nice to have a mooch on the rooftops 😀 Love the first shot but I think the 3rd is my fave. Did you have permission to get up there? or just a bit o0f random luck?


    • Hi Tucker, the castle is closed to the public so had to pull a few strings, thanks, I like the 3rd too.
