Cauldwell's Castle - The Folly Oxford

Just over Folly Bridge with the River Thames all around it is a small island, which I am not sure of the name, but on the Island apart from Artist studios and a nice River Side restaurant is Cauldwell's Castle. Now residential apartments this Castle I have read was apart of the Student Riots in 1200’s, this I am not 100% on, but I am going to do a little more research and will post when I find a little more. I just love going past this little Castle in the middle of Oxford, along the Rivers edge, the building it self is one that you must see on a visit to Oxford, and one of Oxfords more unusual buildings.
