After walking through the lovely park on a crisp December day, I came to the Old Siege House. This building, which dates from the 15th century, still bears the scars of the Siege of Colchester which lasted for 76 days in 1648 during the civil war. Holes from the musket balls can still be seen in the timbers (see the orange markers!?). Click the photos to enlarge.
