Netley Castle is almost unrecognisable as a King Henry VIII fort - but that is what it is! Parts of nearby Netley Abbey were 'converted' into Castle by the King, and a small square blockhouse was built, which is in the foreground of this picture smothered in ivy. The Victorian 'Castle' was plonked on top rather unceremoniously.
The Castle is now a hospital.
