Riverview, New Brunswick
August 9, 2003
The approach from the ticket office is down a path, across a long wooden bridge and then through an impressive gatehouse. The drum towers at the corners of the castle are climbable and afford a good view of the castle courtyard and the surrounding countryside. On the walls, numerous fireplaces and supports indicate the complexity of the structure that the castle was at one time.
This is a castle in which it is easy to imagine the past: riders on horseback riding across the bridge and soldiers manning the walls as a local population went about their business in the courtyard.
