Fantasy Dreams - Castles

Ch√Ęteau de la Mothe-Chandeniers, France. Remarkably similar to Leeds Castle in Kent. I wonder who nicked whose idea?

Love the moat. Quite a barrier for any attacker. At Leeds castle the moat is easily drained as it is contained by a soil wall proud of the ground. However, even without the water it would be a significant barrier, several feet of thick sludge.
