January Squares: Up #20

This is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.

The remains of Beeston Castle in southern Cheshire, England. Built on top of a sandstone outcrop sticking Up out of the Cheshire plain.

I’m not sure but suspect they simply quarried the sandstone outcrop. Apparently archeologists have found traces of an Iron Age hill fort so it had been in use before the Romans arrived.

Parts of Cheshire either started life as an Iron Age settlement or the Romans started the town or city. There’s quite a few towns that started out as a salt production sites for the Romans.
