Castle Coch 01 by jollyjack Castle Coch 01 by jollyjack
Castle Coch (pronounced "cosh") in South-East Wales.
One of my favourite castles. I last visited it back in the 90s.
Though built on the ruins of an authentic fortification, what you see today is a "summer home", built by the 3rd Marquess of Bute in the late 19th century and designed by William Burges, who was also the architect of Cardiff Castle's impressive 19th century overhaul.

I'm really sorry to correct but it's pronounced a bit close to "coke" but with more breath in the "ch", a bit like white noise. Great angles on these buildings, by the way, are these as research for any upcoming bunny escapades?

I wasn't sure how to put the back-of-the-throat sound required for the Welsh pronunciation into text.
I just didn't want people pronouncing it "Cotch".
"Cosh" is close enough :D

Wow-very cool. I went to Conway castle in Wales, which was pretty good but not as impressive as this. Warwick is very good as well-certainly worth a visit if you haven't been :)

It's reasons like this is why I want to visit Wales.

Oh man, Coch was pretty awesome when I visited it two years ago, though I think I prefer ruins as opposed to the refurbished places.

Cardiff castle was pretty amazing though.
