P80700681-Leeds Castle & grounds
These are views of the grounds, 2 adjacent islands in the river Len in southeast England. This is a truly spectacular location, and we had beautiful weather that day.
'Acclaimed as the most romantic castle in England'. The original was built possibly as early as 856. This has disappeared. A stone castle was started about 1119.
Edward I (1270's) rebuilt and enlarged it. Henry VIII spent a lot of money to expand & beautify it.
