The outer Bailey with assortment of buildings & animals

Unfortunately nothing now remains of the castle although the moat can still clearly be seen on Henley 'Mount', it is supposed that local residents of long ago removed all the stones to build nearby villages.
The model therefore
represents a visualisation of
how it may have looked as
there are no known
contemporary prints or
drawings in existence.
Recent excavations by TV's Timeteam concluded that there probably was not a stone keep in the manner shown here but as virtually nothing now remains to base this upon it must be considered pure guesswork on their behalf 

The Gatehouse, the pathway is still visible today

The inner Bailey & keep
