This is the view northwest, across the Great Ditch.  The attempt by Parlimentarian forces to destroy the castle in March 1646 resulted in the left side subsiding to a greater extent than the right.

This was a featured photograph on the now-defunct Fotopic system and was also one of five photographs published in issue 63 of "Pallasch" in February 2018.
