Chepstow Castle and the Curse of the Marshals

If you can’t get out, at least you can enjoy a trip to a great castle from long ago in history. Imagine a door sturdy enough to last 1000 years. I can’t find one that will last a whole decade!

With the current crisis ripping through all our lives, I know we’ll all be missing doing the things we love. It’ll come as no surprise to my readers then, that I have a huge castle-shaped hole in my life at the moment. So I’ve turned to looking back, reliving times when I was free to wander around some stunning medieval places, and it’s been a real source of comfort. For instance, I’ve been recalling our visit to Wye Valley Meadery last November for my Mead Quest, when I couldn’t resist dropping into one of my favourite castles just down the road. Not only is it big and beautiful, it houses some unique relics from its heyday, and it saw the fallout of a posthumous curse put on its most famous owner, the greatest knight England ever knew.

  1. Thanks so much for the reblog, Marilyn! 🙂 I’m just trying to emerge from a period of chaos and overwork which has stopped me blogging altogether for a while. Needs must, I guess. Mind you, the current situation isn’t heaps better either, as I’m trying to finish my study-heavy current module as well as managing having two kids at home and all the hassles that lockdown brings with it. Still, it’s great to be back in touch. You live in the best environment to avoid it, but please take care anyway. 🙂 ❤
