This is the remains of Beeston Castle standing on top of a sandstone crag 350 feet above the Cheshire plain and it’s my contribution to day nine of Becky’s April Squares: Top photo challenge.
Built in the 1220s it fell into disrepair in the 16th century before being used in 1643 during the English Civil War. The castle was partly demolished in 1646 under orders from Cromwell.
My interest in the site? The sandstone cliff below the castle is a nesting site for both Peregrine Falcons and Common Ravens.
