Default a knight out in the sunshine...

no i havent gone mad, not yet. this night really was baking in his chainmail. part of a theatre company that give tours of the castle. he was waiting for the king to come and be lead around the castle by his staff. my kids found it most amusing (ok, i did too).

Dover Castle, in Kent is the largest castle in England. it was built in the 12th century and has seen many victorious battles, earning it the name, "The Lock and Key of the Kingdom".
beneath its floors are the famous tunnels and offices used by the men and women of the RAF during WW2. its radio room and hospital, all underground, are open to the public for tours and its many battlements are home to various weapons spanning the ages, from medieval catapults ot cannons and more recently, artillary from World War II. i plan to return there when i have a day to myself (no children) to go into the tunnels and photograph the many WW2 features they have on display.

enjoy,
john

Really great series John. Love seeing things from other parts of the world.

In the last shot are those cannons that would shoot those large cannonballs?
