Monument (section by section): The Castle courtyard is cobbled. The cellar floor of the tower, which contains an interpretation display, is accessed via a straight timber stair of 14 steps with a handrail. The upper levels are explored by a stone turnpike stair 1000mm wide and 85 steps to the top floor. This is a historic stair, and in places the steps have worn with time so that not all of them are level of square. The stairs have a fixed handrail and light levels beyond the first floor are dependent on natural light, and as such may be very low particularly in winter.
