Even in this lack of color, the outlines of the long, gray, pile of a castle seemed as wonderful as ever. It still dominated the whole landscape.
The castle was often described in the local guide-books. Pictures showed a view of its “South Front,” “West Front,” and “Great Quadrangle.” Tales of old said that it was based on a Roman encampment.
Important papers had recorded the date when a Norman man obtained the royal license to build a castle. It had done duty on Christmas cards with the snow laid on thickly in crystal. It had been lovingly written about by a fair correspondent of the “Eastern Sentinel” with complete disregard of facts.
Stukeley Castle was rich in tapestries, paintings, armor, legends, and ghosts.
