The first thing anyone sees when walking out of the train station on arrival in Penrith is the castle, (or I should say what remains of it) unless that is they cast their eyes to the left, in which case they can feast their eyes on MacDonald's, yea.
after the Nevills the castle became the property of Richard Duke of Gloucester, later Richard 111 of England.
|View from the South|
|view from the North, the Scots would have come from the North, LOL|
|How thoughtful of Richard, must have employed some good sign writers too.|
|"A strong castle for Kings" the sign reads, REALLY?|
|Bridge over what use to be the moat, now if some dipstick put the bridge there in Richards time , its no wonder we only have a ruin today,!!|
|And a bowls match on between the park team and one of the outlying villages.|
|The pavilion, and Dickie's ruin in the background.|
|From the rose beds.|
|More park bedding, Marigolds.|
|Still in the park a monument to the fallen.|
|Park band stand.|
|Park paddling pool, mmmmmm seems to be something missing.|
|Park drinking fountain, ditto.|
|Erected specially for the Scots.|
