Wild Rose, Appleby-in-Westmorland, The Drive Home

Every time we drive to and from the Lakes along the A66, we say look there's a castle at Brough but we never stop and go and have a look. Well this time we did.

We flowed the sighs for the castle and parked in the small car park there. It's only a short walk to the castle but the weather couldn't make it's mind up as to whether it was going to rain or not. It was free entree (make a change). Brough is a medieval Castle built inside the ruins of a Roman fort of Verteris. It was hard to get a good photo partly because of the weather and partly because the best view, is from the A66.

Next we thought we would stop at Barnard Castle, for lunch and do a bit of shopping but when we got there it was market day. It's hard enough to get a parking space on a normal day and it was impossible today, so we drove straight through.

We eventually stopped for a picnic lunch at Locomotion, part of the National Railway Museum, in Shildon. We had only been a few week previous but it is well worth a visit.
