But the Berkhamsted Local History & Museum Society will be given tours of the historic landmark from 10am to 6pm from Saturday until Easter Monday.

Chairman Jenny Sherwood said: “Why don’t the 100 plus children whose school trips were cancelled because of the recent flooding bring your parents this coming weekend?

“Visit the best example of a motte and bailey castle remaining in the country. You will not be disappointed!”
