Warwick Castle – Trebuchet

Warwick Castle - Trebuchet

Looking down from Warwick Castle and over the River Avon, we can see the trebuchet in the castle grounds. This 2005 built replica is one of the largest siege engines in the world. This monster machine needs a team of eight people to load and fire it. Two people run in each wheel to wind the massive arm back down.
