Madame Sherri was an eccentric character. She built her house in the woods. Of course it was not really a castle, it was a wooden house, but it had the bizarre arched stone stairway leading up to a porch on the second floor. She used to throw wild parties there, entertaining her theater friends from NYC. The house burned down a number of years ago, and all that is left now is the foundation and the staircase. Most definitely not safe to climb, I saw several voids in the stonework where key stones had fallen out.
But thanks for showing your photos, I never would have known about it if you had not posted.
It reminds me of a bridge crossing. The arches give it that appearance. The stairs could have been the access to the bridge. The arches may have allowed water or horses to pass through.
Is there more of this ruin? Are there any drawings of the actual structure? I'm fascinated by it, particularly its age. Great composition, BTW.

A tear jerking story into Madame Sherri from rise to fall into dementia, maybe worthy of a mainstream movie.
BEAUTIFUL shot, though. I love it.
But seriously now, I like your shot of the ruins inbetween all this green and brown.
Did you dare to get on top of them? Maybe up to heaven?
