Steps To The Keep, Carisbrooke Castle.-As a memorial of a bygone age how interesting are the steps to the keep, the last resort of the besieged, from which it would be difficult to dislodge them, without great loss. The well which furnished them with water is now dry, but can still be seen. The battlements furnish the visitor with a magnificent view of the country in every direction. The steps, seventy-two in number, are somewhat steep. The walls are covered with climbing plants. Shelter is afforded by trees and bushes, while access is given at the back of the ancient buildings in the Castle, to facilitate escape in case of surprise.
