Firstly, the staff we spoke to here were excellent, as always with English Heritage - enthusiastic and helpful.
The fort looks incredible from the aerial pictures, from the ground it is difficult to get a sense of the place. Each building has signs on it to say what it is but we couldn't see how to cross the wooden bridge to look at the fort from the outside. There is ongoing work so there are vans parked around which, although necessary, does detract from the place.
The exhibitions in the barracks were very good, well laid out and interesting. I'd just like better signage around the place and an exterior walk - most castles are better to look at from the outside than the inside!
