  View towards the Dragon Hotel, Montgomery, Montgomeryshire, Wales   Montgomery, Montgomeryshire.

This little lane does not appear to have a name; it leads up to the castle ruins and, be warned, it is very steep. The timber-framed building below is the Dragon Hotel. It dates from the 17th century and was a former coaching inn.

The clock tower on the left is on the Market Hall.
