Moy Castle 4

After exploring the ground floor I was led up a narrow stairway to a small side chamber. On its floor lay a plywood panel, set there to prevent anyone from inadvertently falling into the pit. That had actually happened to one of the owner’s dogs (but they’d managed to rescue it). The panel was lifted up to expose a narrow hole in the floor. Looking down into the dark pit I could make out a flat surface of pitch-black water. The water level was high so I could not see the rock at the bottom where a prisoner could stand to keep their head above the water.
