UK Holiday 8: Cornwall: Restormel Castle, Cornwall (page 1/8)

details...

I had wanted to stop at the village of Lostwithiel, or Lostwythiel, to see Restormel Castle. I have a couple of old pictures of Restormel Castle and wanted to see how much it had changed. We stopped off at a small village on the way to photograph what might or might not be the remains of an Anglo-Saxon or Celtic cross or marker, but when we got to the castle it was raining, and Clyde decided to wait for me in the car. He hates rain. Me, I padded off on bare and eager feet to explore.

Testormel Castle is now owned by English Heritage.
