Today I took myself & dog off to look for Brandon Castle,
or the remains of it. It happens to be on private land, I discovered - it belongs to a riding school. However, I politely asked the gent there if I could cross the fields & see it, and he gave his consent.
There are just some small tumps & the motte left now, with traces of an original wall, and the top bit is being occasionally used by the riding school for training horses as far as I can see, as there is a well worn circle there. Anyhow I dowsed a bit, & discovered what seemed to be 6 energy points within this circle, which, when I followed it through, was in the form of a 6 pointed star! Very interesting, thus:
Is this possible??
While I was out & about, I went to find what's left of Baginton Castle.
When I got to the church, I found a group of 4 people who, very oddly enough, were there to see the castle as well!! Coincidence?? They were from the local Heritage Society, and had made an appt with the farmer whose land the castle is on (yes, it's on private property too) so that he would let them through. Now there was only a half hour window when I could have met these peeps, and I turned up just at the right moment, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to see the remains at all!!
So I pretended I was one of them,
dog and all, & we were taken across & down a meadow full of horses to view it, although not allowed to get very near. I didn't dare ask to dowse it. Apparently there was a complete Saxon village beside it years ago, but no visible above-ground signs of it now.
