Blaise Castle (Hillfort) by vulcan This folly castle was built in the mid 1700's on the hill that was originally an iron age camp. St Blaisus (sp?) an hermit lived on the hill and thats where today we get the term blaizer for jacketwear. There is some connection to Jane Austen and the castle whether it was a direct connection or featured in her storyline, I'm not sure.
