“Ok for a quick stroll if you happen to be near. Don't go on a visit expecting too much...it's a bit average”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

It looks impressive from afar...and less so close up. The pub beside it is as rough as can be. I wouldn't be shocked if I encountered a 'lucky heather' seller.

“Worth a visit but parking is often impossible!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

The towers look amazing at night with the spotlights shining up at them. Nice place for a walk and maybe a drink in the pub. Not much to keep you there though. If you're interested in ghosts this is apparently a very active location.
