We decided not to do the tour of the castle as at that we were a little castled out( if there is such a statement)
We wandered back to the car park and just across the way in a lovely grassy paddock were these beautiful Highland Cattle.
After leaving Bamburgh we headed to Hexham and booked into The Queen's Arms Hotel.
The Publican of the hotel sent us to a place called Steel Rigg.
The next morning we drove into the centre of Hexham, caught up on a bit of shopping and a coffee while we waited to be able to drive out to Housesteads the Ruins of an ancient Roman fort.
We then headed to another place that I have wanted to see, Goathland in North Yorkshire.
Goathland is a pretty little village built around the traditional village green.
After getting back together we went in search of a certain old pub for lunch but on the way came across Nottingham Castle which sadly wasn't open that month due to repairs.
The rear of the building was also stunning,
Bosworth hall Hotel and Spa in the town of Market Bosworth.
What an amazing place !
Some of the reception rooms were set up for a christening and a Hen's afternoon tea party.
We then decided to go to the Bosworth Battlefield located at Sutton Cheney.
This was the site of one of the last battles in The War Of The Roses and took place on 22nd August 1485. Henry V11 defeated Richard 111.
Back at the Hall we decided to have a few drinks and just have some great finger food for dinner(This is where I discovered how much I love pink Rhubarb Gin), I have been searching the bottle shops back here at home and have only just found it last week.
I watched the plane camera on my tv screen,
My next post will be about the few days we spent in Abu Dahbi.
So until then,take care,
Jane and Brian.
