Witley court must have been beautiful before it was destroyed by a fire because even the remaining ruins are impressive. The ruins and gardens can be visited and the fountain in the garden works at certain hours.
The front side of the Witley court.
The fountain just started working when we arrived. It is the centerpiece of the gardens.
The fountain with behind it the ruins of Witley court.
These flower gardens have been made to look how they must have looked many years ago when Witley court was still in use.
Next to Witley court is the parish church which was not destroyed in the fire. From the outside it does not look very special, but inside it is really very special, with colorful glass windows and beautiful painting on the ceiling.

From Witley court we then went to visit Stokesay castle. This is a small castle with a beautiful gate house. Next to the castle is a small church.

Some colorful windows in the church show saints Michael and Gabriel.
Visitors to Stokesay castle get an audio tour, which explain a lot about the history of the building.

After visiting Stokesay’s castle we went to see Mitchell’s fold stone circle. This is a small stone circle located in some moorland. The stone circle is not very special, but it is a nice place for a walk and to get some fresh air.
Near the Mitchell’s fold stone circle we found this sheep hiding in the ferns.
From Mitchell’s fold stone circle we drove to Wales looking for another bed and breakfast.
