The demolition of Northampton Castle in the 1870s

The ruins of Northampton Castle were cleared in the 19th century to make room for Northampton Castle railway station, which is still open today and just called Northampton.

So I blogged a couple of years ago, and to prove it here is a photo of that clearance taking place.

Don't be too harsh on the Victorians: for better or worse, many of the views we hold today will seem very odd to people 150 years from now.
