Youngest castle in England

Castle Drogo is a country house and mixed-revivalist castle on the edge of Dartmoor, Devon, England. Based on the design of famous achitect Edwin Lutyens, it was constructed 1911-1930, and due to the economic downturn, shrinked to a third of the original design.

It was the last castle to be built in England, albeit a very weird one - as you can see. With cranes and scaffolding you get mixed feelings when visiting it. A concrete construction with traditional shapes, nice art deco parts combined with something of an English aristocratic Disneyland. A weird one, but remarkable and rather unique.

in fact it's 'almost' monochrome. There are colours left in a very subtle saturation.
