Carisbrook Castle 151
Photographer: Sedgfield, Russell
Medium: Photographic print
"Carisbrook is about a mile-and-a-half from Newport, and is situated upon a peculiarly round hill - a glacis in itself, such a one as may have given the idea of the artificial defence to the soldier who first brought it into practical use. The general appearances as seen from the road, is strikingly picturesque. The strong outline of its ruined wall and towering keep, the abrupt sweep down towards the valley, the whole backed by Bowcombe Downs, yield a massive panorama."
