Photographer's Note

The imposing structure of Belfast Castle towers over the city below. Situated on Cave Hill, the castle is closely linked with the history of Belfast City. Replacing the original built by the Normans in the 12th century, the present castle was completed in 1870 and is a fine example of Scottish baronial architecture.

Following an extensive refurbishment during the 1980s, the castle has been resturned to its former glory and is a showpiece for Belfast City. This particular day there was a wedding party at the castle.

Tomorrow I shall post another photo of the castle but this time taken looking down from the outcrop of rock (top left of castle) known as Napoleons nose by us Ulster people.
