Whilst we were away in Shropshire we thought we'd make the most of our National Trust membership and visit a local castle.
Croft Castle is about half an hour from the lodge in the village of Yarpole in Herefordshire. It has a long and varied history dating back to the Doomsday book in 1085.
You can read more about the Croft family here.
Built in the 17th century, the medieval fortress was destroyed in 1645 but the main house survived.
