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

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
