Castlenaud and the gardens

by Ellie

On Wednesday we drove to Castlenaud. We walked up the hill to get to the castle. The castle is from the time of the 12th century. In the 100 year war between England and France it changed hands 7 times.

We saw lots of trebuchets. One was being worked on by a man. We took a tour around the castle. It was very interesting. We went up the keep of the castle. There were lots of spiral staircases. There was a museum p the top. In it there were lots of suits of armour and swords. There was a rope going all the way from the bottom up to the top to transport cannonballs up and down.

After the castle we went to the gardens up the road a bit. They are beautiful. We had lunch there and we also found a maze. It was fun. Me and Zack played in it for a long time. We had a drink there and then we drove home.
