Because of this, castles were cruder structures than monasteries: Monasteries were frequently significant stone buildings located in the biggest and most fertile valleys, while castles were constructed on windy crests where their citizens dedicated time and space to projects for offense and defense.

On one of these parapets is a picturesque bowling green covered in grass and surrounded by an aged hedge of yew that has been designed into coarse battlements.
