BERKELEY (pronounced “barkly”). I visited this attractive, lived-in castle in 1996. This castle has a very grim history . Edward II (the homosexual son of Edward Longshanks in the movie “Braveheart”) was brutally murdered/executed in the dungeon. The castle is intact, except for a large gap in the wall that Cromwell (who destroyed most of the old private baronial castles in England) had done as a penalty. The founders of Berkely, California are, I believe, descended from these Berkelys.
