    marcus69x I love WW2 meah!!!

    Quite an interesting article. I knew Douglas bader was sent there but that's all I've ever really heard about it. A new project to read/learn about I think. Cheers Peter Clare.

    Can the bedroom furniture be fashioned into gliders?

    Maybe it needs to be commercialised and pay its way to continue to exist in its present state.

    The castle is a very old building with a lot of history, this is just the current chapter .
    I don't believe it should be kept as a WW2 theme park but the events from it's time should be remembered but for the place to survive it has to make money.
    I've wanted to go there for quite awhile now, one day I will.
    (Monte Cassino and Red Squre being the other places I must see.)

    I agree, but, likewise, it shouldn't be so remodelled that it loses it's important features. According to the BBC report, this is what the company that is turning the castle into a hotel intends to do. For example, the solitary confinement cells are to become WCs. All health and safety regulations considered, surely the castle can become a hotel whilst retaining its historic importance.
