May 19, 2018 – Massachusetts – Bancroft Castle

Today we had our second adventure to Bancroft’s Castle in Groton.  (I therefore will include pictures from our first visit too, just last November).  Bancroft’s Castle was built in 1906 by General William Bancroft on Gibbet Hill in Groton, Massachusetts.  Much of this Castle was destroyed in July 1932 during a fire.  The Castle and trails are now part of Groton’s conservation land, so it can be enjoyed by all.

A steep, but short walk up a hill brings you to this small Castle, neighboring a local  pasture.  The Castle itself is towering in height, but yet small in area. I took many photos as we walked throughout the ruins of the Castle.  Wilma enjoyed jumping throughout the hideouts, while Shadow was eager to pose for photos, my treat driven boy.  After enjoying this unique spot, we wandered the nearby trails.  This area gives quite the view of the town of Groton and surrounding areas.  The Castle is quite the hidden gem.
