The Castle sits shimmering in the light, its windows impenetrable to curious eyes, and has an otherworldly presence. It belongs to the Blackwood family from the story We have always lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson. Perhaps nature will eventually smother it with vines in the same way roses overran the palace in Sleeping Beauty, giving rise to more stories and legends.
