Nunney Castle by CliveAyron Nunney Castle by CliveAyron
Nunney Castle (Nunney, Somerset, UK) is a small, French style castle surrounded by a deep moat. It was built for Sir John Delamare (a veteran of The Hundred Years War) in 1373.

This was the interior, but more than 600 years after the castle was built, it is now part of the exterior - if you know what I mean. This was Oliver Cromwell's fault, as during the Civil Wars (1642-51) his men used cannon to blast a great hole in the north wall of the castle, forcing the garrison to surrender. The badly damaged wall finally collapsed in 1910.

I would really love to use this piece as reference for a graphite pencil sketch I am doing for a class. Would this be alright by you to use this absolutely beautiful piece that way?
