Giant slide at 'Ed Sheeran's Castle On The Hill'

Visitors to the castle which inspired Ed Sheeran's Castle On The Hill are sliding through time as part of a £1.2m conservation and improvement project.

Framlingham Castle, in Suffolk, which dates back to the 12th Century and is a former home to Henry VIII's eldest daughter Mary I, is in the final phase of works to improve the fortress's walls and create a new visitor's centre.

English Heritage has introduced a temporary slide on scaffolding to carry visitors from the top of the castle wall to the courtyard below. It will operate until May.
