Alfred's Castle



Above the Head of the River Ock, is Ashbury-park, near which is a Camp of about 100 Paces in Diameter, but the Works are almost entirely defaced, by digging for Stones to build Lord Craven's House in the Park, which was a very magnificent one, but was unhappily burnt down.
From The Natural History of England by Benjamin Martin (1759).
