After a quick look around a museum we headed to the tower of St Augustine which I honestly thought would simply be just that. A tower. I knew it was once part of something much bigger, I didn't realise that the "much bigger" part was still there, lying in ruins. It's awesome!

When we arrived we got 'hello's' straight away. Not many of the kids are shy. We walked upstairs into a roughly made stone room.
