|Description ||An unanticipated find was at the Nothe Fort in Weymouth www.fortressweymouth.co.uk . This has, among many magnificent model displays, a labyrinthine passageway (my mum got lost!), a whistling ghost and a find the
mouse activity for children, a section concerning the siege / attack on Maiden Castle - with a splendid model showing the Roman assault on the E end of Maiden Castle. I was enjoying the visit hugely anyway, and finding this
towards the end of day was the icing on the cake for me. This was decently priced (£3.50 / adult; under 16s free), and kept us all happy for over 3 hours, again. The only thing, is that the council parking nearby is expensive, unless you park elsewhere, having a long, uphill walk from Weymouth town centre.
Unlike at Dorset County Museum, no forms were needed to use photography, and permission freely granted, so I assume as long as credit is given where it is due, using photos of the model should be OK. The model was made my Jorge De Cahunha, if memory serves correct.|
|I am informed that the Nothe will be forced to up prices soon and begin charging for kids too.|
