Because of this, castles were cruder constructions than monasteries: Monasteries were often immense stone buildings set in the biggest and most fecund valleys, while castles were erected on windy crests where their residents dedicated time and space to projects for offense and defense. The bare fortresses did not provide for the calm avocation of horticulture. The best specimen of the early Anglo-Norman style of architecture existent presently is Berkeley Castle. The keep is reported to have been created during the time of William the Conqueror. A spacious terrace intended for exercising and as a means to stop enemies from mining under the walls runs around the building. On one of these parapets is a scenic bowling green covered in grass and bordered by an aged hedge of yew that has been designed into coarse battlements.
