Different kind of post from me this afternoon.
Today, I went Mountain Climbing.................
Well that's what it felt like!!
The Castle ruins are just behind our house and it is a short cut to the Cemetery so visit
my Mum, normally we walk along the Canal banks ( which is no longer there,
they are going to re install it again, and have been repairing the cross over bridges, but,
that is a another story.
Anyway I said we will take the short cut up to the Castle, which I have never used for years
when I was young this was our playground so would run up. BIG MISTAKE
I thought I was going to need an ambulance lol, what with getting old and Asthma, not a
good mix with a near vertical climb.
This is where we walked up through the trees instead of
The grown up path which is still quite
and here a few photos of the Castle Ruins
The Kitchen and the big hall
The Dungeon was under this tower,
it was our favourite hiding place, very creepy
There is lots of work going on here at the moment
by the Heritage Society, making it more accessible, and repairing damage.
I have no idea what kind of damage we did when we played here
50+ yrs ago, !!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour around my "Backyard/Playground"
