Warwick - the Castle
The construction of Warwick Castle began about 914 AD when fortifications were constructed
in order to protect the small hilltop settlement. The building grew over the centuries and it is
now one of England's finest examples of a mediaeval castle.
The castle was bought by the Tussauds Group in 1978 - they carried out repairs and
restoration and opened the castle to the public so that it is now a huge tourist attraction with
hundreds of thousands of visitors every year - try parking there in the summer !!
Warwick Chamber of Trade has an excellent website with lots of information about the
town, whilst more information about the castle can be found at the Warwick Castle website:

from then.

This lovely old Oilette postcard by Raphael Tuck was mailed in 1911.  
From the reverse - "Warwick Castle, standing on a mound above the
Avon, is the finest example of a fortified mansion in the country.
Ethelfleda, King Alfred's daughter, is believed to have founded it in
915. Guy's Tower and Caesar's Tower flank the gateway (all three
dating from the fourteenth century), and there are two unfinished
towers - the Bear and the Clarence."
