Colchester Castle.

The 'old stone doorway' in the foreground is a folly built by Charles Gray, who owned the castle in the 18th century. Gray treated the castle as a ruin in a landscape and embellished it to that end. The round tower on the South-East corner of the castle can be seen beyond.

Out of the picture to the right and a little further down the park it is possible to see another length of the Roman town wall with part of it's defensive ditch.
