A castle in a castle...

This is Portchester Castle. The keep and most of the building remains in the foreground are Norman and later but that castle was built in one corner of a much earlier Roman fort (the wall to the right being the original Roman)…. who said recycling was a modern idea?

It's a fascinating place, isn't it? Did you visit the church in the castle grounds too?

wonder what it will become next? ;-) lovely to have such old places to see and photograph.. here the oldest building of a decent size was built around 1666

I just can't believe you have all of this incredible architecture at the tip of your lens all the time. Maybe in my next life.

Interesting! Of course now we thinking nothing of "additions" to buildings but I've not thought much about these really old structures doing that. But then we don't really HAVE "really old structures" here! :)

oh this is a great example of recycling for sure! In Rome there are so many buildings that were "recreated" to serve a new purpose. lovely shot
