Florence’s shelter
Skovva Florence

Built in about 1900, this shelter provided welcome protection from the wind and rain for the ‘keeper of the keys’, Florence Nightingale Richards (b.1856).

Like her mother and grandmother before her, she acted as castle guide, holding this position until the age of 82. This shelter sits against a wall that was built in 1852 by the local vicar.
