She was no stranger to waiting, after all. Her men had always made her wait. “Watch for me, little cat,” her father would always tell her, when he rode off to court or fair or battle. And she would, standing patiently on the battlements of Riverrun as the waters of the Red Fork and the Tumblestone flowed by. He did not always come when he said he would, and days would ofttimes pass as Catelyn stood her vigil, peering out between crenels and through arrow loops until she caught a glimpse of Lord Hoster on his old brown gelding, trotting along the river-shore toward the landing. “Did you watch for me?” he’d ask when he bent to hug her. “Did you, little cat?”
Wilton Castle was originally built to guard the strategic position where the road between Anglo-Saxon England and Wales crossed the river Wye. Wilton Castle is believed to have been built around the second half of the 12th century (replacing a Motte and Bailey). This Norman fortification is of an irregular quadrangle formed by crenelated stone walls surrounding an inner courtyard with a fortified tower at each corner.
A Grade I Scheduled Ancient Monument, Wilton Castle is on the market for £1.5 million: Five-bedroom property, plus dry moat, medieval ruins, and an outhouse.
There are rugged flashlights and then there are SureFire lights. For nearly four decades the company has built some of the most bombproof tactical lights in the market. Made in the USA, their lights are simple and effective, with focused sets of features designed for precise performance.
The E2D LED Defender Ultra is part of their CR123A series of lights, making use of the battery’s high capacity and voltage. The light comes with two outputs: 5 lumens for extended runtime and 500 lumens for maximum output. A rear clicky switch lets you select both options, with momentary On for quick activation on high output.
Its aerospace aluminum body comes hard anodized and sealed with o-rings and gaskets to provide maximum internal protection. At its head is a Total Internal Reflection (TIR) lens that provides an even, general-purpose floody beam, protected by a crenelated strike bezel for self-defense or glass breaking.
