EDITORS COMMENTS
1. Title: "Piel Castle - A Medieval Gem on Piel Island, Cumbria" Nestled on the picturesque Piel Island, off the coast of Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, lies the enchanting ruins of Piel Castle. This historic fortification, a Grade I listed monument, stands proudly against the backdrop of the Irish Sea, its rich history etched in every stone. The castle, a testament to medieval engineering, was initially built in the 14th century to protect the Furness area from potential invaders. Over the centuries, it underwent numerous modifications, with the most significant additions made during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. The image captures the essence of this castle, with its imposing tower and gatehouse standing tall amidst a sea of boulders and pebbles. The castle's defence system, including the bailey and the surrounding walls, can be seen in their semi-ruined state, a poignant reminder of the castle's past. The castle's location on Piel Island adds to its allure. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, it is accessible only by foot at low tide, making it an intriguing and isolated destination. The rugged coastal landscape, with its crashing waves and salty breeze, only adds to the mystique of this medieval gem. Piel Castle, with its rich history and stunning location, is a must-visit for anyone interested in history, architecture, or simply the beauty of the natural world. Its enduring presence serves as a reminder of the past, a beacon of history, and a source of inspiration for generations to come. Mr CJ Wright LRPS, through his lens, has captured the essence of this magnificent castle, immortalising it in this photograph. The image is a visual treat, inviting us to explore the castle's history and marvel at its beauty.
