The Motte and the Bailey

Helen Breach

Being at the castle unlocks a feeling of marvel and unleashes a series of basic emotions – wonder at being in such an historic place, awe at how it was built and joy at the wonderful views. The castle also has its own flora and fauna. These two primary-colour views reflect the basic pleasure of being at the castle.
