Medieval Stairway, Stokesay Castle, Shropshire.

This is the typical medieval stairway which gives access to the roof of the South Tower. As medieval stairways go this is well lit and not excessively steep and even the treads have a reasonable amount of room front to back.

The Solar was a room in many English and French medieval manor houses, great houses and castles, generally situated on an upper storey, designed as the family's private living and sleeping quarters. This room is reached using an external stairway.
