Thank you for visiting CastlesFortsBattles.com / CastlesFortsBattles.co.uk (hereafter collectively referred to as CFB). Your use of this website and associated content is governed by the Terms and Conditions set out below.



Website is provided on an ‘as is’ basis


This website is provided by the administrator on an "as is" basis; the information provided is to present a historical overview, promote interest in UK history and assist with planning historical days out. However access details regularly change and historic venues, whether manned or unmanned, are often closed due to a myriad of reasons. Even if still open, significant restoration work or events (e.g. promotional, weddings, conference etc) may be ongoing which could mar your visit. Therefore, before travelling to any site listed on CFB, you are strongly advised to check with the operator/owner that the relevant venue is accessible at the planned time of your visit.
