Skelton Keep

Up on the hillside stands Skelton Keep. It is by no means the largest keep anyone has seen as it is only here to shelter the towns folk in times of need and provide living quarters for the lord and his family whilst securing a small guard. However, the walls of the keep are nearly 70’ high and there are only 2 outer entrances. A thick set of doors placed in the middle of the front wall just big enough to allow a cart in and well-wrapped in iron bands to strengthen it, and a smaller gate around the side big enough for a horse and rider.

The keep is built of a white rock that if the sun were out would gleam brightly. Outside the keep is a small courtyard with a horse corral, a few worksheds, and an area for the guard to train. A trail outside the side door leads to a small waterfall and meadow just beyond the field where a small sitting area has been built to enjoy a picnic or an evening by a fire.
