Monday 19 October – castle spotting

strickland

Today I’ve been to Lanercost, Brampton, Warwick Bridge, Shap, Penrith, Newby and Great Salkeld - all in one day. And also Great Strickland, where a herd of 100 dairy cows gets walked through the middle of the village twice daily for milking. The farmer considered himself lucky that he also had sheep - they are currently keeping him afloat.

This particular tour meant I saw 7 castles in just a few hours. Including Naworth:

And the nearby Lanercost Priory:

This is a particularly wonderful spot, it’s well into the country and it’s difficult to imagine such an impressive building being located there.
