Castle Coombe 1000 piece jigsaw
Judging by the number of visitors each year, Castle Combe is certainly considered to be one of England’s prettiest villages. The only evidence of the original site of the castle is the earthworks on higher ground above the village itself. Originally a British hill fort, it was later taken over by the Romans and then enlarged into a castle by the Normans. The beauty of the village owes much to the ‘By Brook’ river, which in the middle ages had a more practical purpose of providing power for the booming wool industry.
