Text: Taken from the original source
THIS CASTLE stands in a Solitary Place at the Foot of the west side of the Malvern Hills. (it’s a quadrangular Oblong & encompass’d by a Double Ditch of the same for as is here represented; and appears by several circumstances in the Remains themselves, as well as by other concurring Tokens to be a Place of very great Antiquity: tho’ we shall not pretend to determine that it is Roman. There is very lately discover’d in it, a Cavern which is not yet open’d, – Thos. Rede Esqr. is the present Proprietor thereof.
