The Big Castle is a 14th-century castle near the town of Deurne, in the Dutch province North Brabant. Since 1944 it is a ruin rebuilt as it must have been before the 2nd world war.

Ruin with history, around 1400, in a beautiful park, with catering, animals and tennis courts of TC Deurne. Nice to combine with other historical places in Deurne. Such as museum de Wieger (garden path of my father - known for the song by Wim Sonneveld). Also nice is the DAF walk, including past the house of the founder of DAF (van Doorne). The name that also reappears at the castle ruins, the lords of Doerne.

42Deurne cycling around I came upon this 14th C. ruin surrounded by water. The area has a lot of life with the De Vlier stream running though a green space with meadows a small petting zoo and a nice bistro. #railthetrails

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
