Goodrich Castle is a now ruinous Norman medieval castle situated to the north of the village of Goodrich in Herefordshire, England controlling a key location between Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye. It was praised by William Wordsworth as the "noblest ruin in Herefordshire" and is considered by historians to be one of the best examples of English military architecture.
This shot is taken from high on the curtain wall and overlooks the beautiful rolling Herefordshire countryside. Dominating the foreground is a mighty oak tree standing guard over the southern approach. I imagine this tree has probably witnessed some interesting history.
