Drogo’s roof and scaffolding

Castle Drogo opened to the public yesterday to preview the new interpretation inside the Castle “Nothing is normal – everything will be different” – I will post a blog about that tomorrow but I haven’t processed all my pictures yet! So today I will show you some pictures of the building works and views as seen from the Viewing Tower. Only a few weeks to go for the viewing tower in its current format  – it will be changed as the project progresses over the coming months.
