The Castle of King John at Odiham

Today I am with Barry Stevens to explore Odiham Castle, situated close to Odiham, in Hampshire, but actually in North Warnborough. It is one of only three fortresses built by King John during his reign. The site was possibly chosen by King John because he had visited the area in 1204 and it lay halfway between Windsor and Winchester.

The castle is now in a ruinous state, and would have been larger than what we see today. Barry Stevens, a local and historic enthusiast, takes me around the edifice that has been with him since childhood.
