In 1994, I was researching 18th-century English domestic tourism (similar to the vogue for visiting US National Parks). One of the highlights of my travel to England was the Westcountry picturesque tour circuit was the ruin of the 15th-century castle of Berry Pomeroy on Dartmoor in Devon.
Having convinced a friend to drive me out to the remote location of the abandoned castle we discovered it was closed to the public, enclosed by a high chain link fence, with a sturdy gate and no one around.
It seemed a shame to have come so far and not make our way to our goal – I needed to take some photographs and make some sketches in support of my research. The course seemed obvious: Storm the castle!!!! (well, jump the fence).
