When we were up there with the whole group, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to see inside The Cage. Sandwiches were just about consumed when a National Trust Landrover came pootling up the track and pulled up outside the main entrance.
The jingling of keys announced the opening of the heavily padlocked gate and the admittance of visitors.
The two main rooms are on the first and second floors and accessed by a stone spiral staircase.
I love spiral staircases. I think it's fascinating, the way they wind up above your head; like a staircase in reverse.
I only took a couple of photos upstairs because the rooms were empty of any items of interest (except a few information boards) but rather crammed full of curious people. Each room filled the whole of its level, with just room for the staircase in one corner. On the second floor, I did take this photo of deer skins and antlers, though I'd rather see the live specimens!
To be honest, what I was really hoping for was the opportunity to go out onto the roof, but that was not forthcoming :(
It was all a bit disappointing. I suppose I'll just have to wait for the views a little later in the walk.
