|The entry to the fort. When William built his fort, there was a draw bridge here.|
|The dry moat around the fort.|
|All that remains of the cathedral is the outline and a few stone walls.|
Unfortunately, there was a shortage of water on the site, so after several years, a new catherdral was built in nearby Salisbury, with the one on Old Sarum deactivated. Once the cathedral was gone, the village soon moved, too.
|Inside the fort the basic walls are still visible.|
|No one wanted the inside rubble.|
|Several of the rubble walls are quite high.|
King Henry VIII finally gave the fort to a friend, who dismantled what was left for salvage, leaving only the tumbled stone interiors of the walls. Recycling again!
|Looking off to the new Cathedral in Salisbury consecrated in 1258.|
