Description

This derelict castle building in the Perth suburb of Dog Swamp used to be part of The Land of Make Believe display centre. It was created by the brick and roofing tile company Wunderlich and featured small buildings based on fairytales. The castle was known as Old King Cole’s Castle, named after the figure in the British folk song/nursery rhyme. The small brick castle is reached by crossing a moat and has an arched entrance, crenellation, a tower, and balistraria (arrowslits).
