Calshot Castle

Whenever we go anywhere now it soon turns into a history lesson, and usually it's for my benefit as well as the kids. Of course I knew all the important stuff like which King was responsible for it's construction in the sixteenth century, blah blah....but I soon discovered where they used to pour the boiling tar down on unwelcome visitors, and where all the stone and timber to build the castle came from.

"And see there Dad, that's where the cannonballs smashed into it!"

"Cor Greg, that's really interesting!"
