This is a bit of a mystery. Clive writes:
I am reading a book written by Lewis Wilshire he writes about his walks in the countryside around Bath and Bristol, and he includes Kelston Round Hill. He states in the book as follows…It was here, on Kelston Round Hill that Sir John Harington built a castle, it was completed in 1591 in time for him to entertain the queen, on her royal tour of the west country. [the Queen being his godmother Elizabeth 1st]I have tried to find out more about this castle as he speaks as if it was actually on the clump, so I am hoping your records will enlighten me.I live at Hill Head near Portsmouth now but for 18yrs of my life i lived in a bungalow at the top of Saltford hill, with a wonderful view of Kelston and the clump.From time to time my friends and i would run from our homes up to the hill and back so it holds a lot of memories for me.Now i am trying to piece together its history.Hope you can give me a little more info
“Jacques”, the inventor of the flushing toilet, built a castle on the Clump? And Queen Elizabeth I stayed up there?? Is it possible??? Thanks Clive!
