Serum Castle is built upon a Bronze Age Hill settlement. It is called where the Five Rivers meet (read Serum by Edward Rutherford). There are no rooms at present as they are all runined, infact the whole structure is a runin. There was once a much smaller Cathedrel at Serum which was built by the Normans after Hastings.
There was Queen Isabella up there who was imprisoned in the doungeon by her husband, who was king at the time. She was realeased when her son came to the throan. Thire tomb is in Salisbury Cathedrel.
When the Romans discovered Old Serum they called it Soverodonium. Serum is windswept and open to the elements, it is visited by thousands of tourists each year on thire way to Stonehenge. On the banks there are lots of rabbit warrens, the rabbits only come out during the evenings when the tourists have vanished.
Salisbury cathedrel was constructed from stones which were carried down from Serum. The clergy were desperate for a new cathdral, as the one up Serum was too windswept, and there was bickering with the army.
Serum has a partly buried in moat which my cousin still managed to fall down! There is also a small farm nearbye, and sometimes the sheep are allowed to roam the battlements. There are ledgends about the area being haunted, some say there is a phantom battle enected most night's. No one has seen this, as no one has dared stay the night in that dark gloomy place.
Many butterflies flutter around Serum, and buzzards may be seen hovering over the fields.
It is a good place to walk the dog and see some great sunsets. This must have been a wonderful place before the invention of Henry Fords motor car.
The place is now owned by The national Trust, I think they charge about £4 to get in.
There are daily historis enectments up there like jousing and the English Civil war. Someone even fell into the doungeon after trying to break into the cash till. He was found
the next morning with a broken leg.
There is something mysteriouse about Serum and there are many secrets still left to be uncovered.
