No Sand In This Castle
For a Bank Holiday treat, Gail and I went to Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire for the day. I got a special deal for some tickets on Groupon and it seemed too good an offer to miss. There isn't much left of the castle itself. But there are a couple of towers that you can go up, which if the weather was fine, you would see for miles. But today was cloudy and overcast, so didn't see a great deal of the surrounding counties.
The highlight of the day was a re-enactment group that dressed up as 17th century soldiers and highwaymen. The costumes were very colourful and brightened up for what was a very dull day. Took loads of pictures, so a few may pop up during the course of the week. I have meanwhile put several on Flickr. Link below.
