Super little castle to get kids thinking. You can string stories about Knights, dragons and warfare. It is also great for KS2 on castle motte and Bailey as very easy to see, touch and experience.

If you are in the Frome area then you must visit this lovely example of a medieval castle. Set in the middle of the pretty village of Nunney its well worth a visit.
