    Severndroog castle is not what it's name implies, it is as far from a castle as you can imagine, it is infact a local folly whch was erected in 1784 by Lady James. She built Severndroog after her husband was killed and she wanted to commemorate his capture of the pirate fortress of Severndroog on the Malabar coast of India on the 2nd April 1755. Severndroog has been part of a bbc programme where people voted to save English historical sites as this site is under threat of being closed down and demolished if funding can't be found. Details of which are on the website. I visited this place last summer with my family, they were having a fun day with lots of people dressed as Saxons and there were lots of displays like how to make old iron tools etc. The folly itself is very high and narrow with lots of stair and therefore completely unsuitable for wheelchair users however the surrounding grounds are very pretty and make it worth a visit. You pay a nominal fee to enter the folly but it's free to look around the outside and grounds. Plenty of parking on nearby Shooters hill
