Hidden in the Rubble: This retreat is tucked away inside an old fortress and has some amazing design features

Hidden in the Rubble: This retreat is tucked away inside an old fortress and has some amazing design features

From afar this structure looks nothing more than a derelict old castle that is falling down and decaying, but something amazing happens the closer you get. In amongst the red falling rubble and broken walls lies a retreat with rich historical resonance. After decades of being left to rot, this fortress was rebuilt by architects at Witherford Watson Mann Architects and is located in Astley, England. One of the most breath-taking views in this fortress is the large open room which has been restored with a large overhead window and several smaller ones on the walls. This would have originally been two floors, but has now been converted in a large open room with so much historical references. This is an absolutely stunning sight to gaze upon and a magical renovation of an old English castle.
