Tattershall Castle

A lovely morning spent at Tattershall Castle. They were having a living history day when we were there with lots of people dressed in medieval clothes, living life as they would have done in medieval times.

Mark getting lessons in medieval warfare.

View from the top of the tower.

Old tapestries.

Original old fireplace.

Summer Walk

It's hot and sunny just now so to make the most of this lovely weather we went for a walk around Culverthorpe.

Lots of wheat fields ready to harvest.

A welcome shady spot on the path.

We came upon this sign.

There was indeed a bull in the field and also these Highland Cows with enormous horns. The path we were walking on was very narrow so I don't know what we would have done if one of these had put their head over the fence.

The path cut through farmer's fields.

Then past Culverthorpe hall and the beautiful old houses next to it.

It was a lovely walk but we were more than ready for a long cold drink when we got home.
