Back before Arran arrived Me, Mum and TND went to a place called Lowther Castle (click the name to visit their website), nearby to Penrith. Mum has wanted to go there for a long time since they has beed uncovering the old ruined gardens and Mum joined the mailing list for updates. They finally opened to the general public last year and so we went along to see it.
The castle got built in 1806 and has had a very interesting history, being used by the army and as a chicken farm! It has lots of grounds and you can walk through them all, they has not changed very much, just making them useable, so Mum says it feels really magical, like you is discovering a forgotten, hidden world. Being low to the ground and hasing a superior nose it always feels like that to us dogs, but it nice for my peoples to feel that way too.
TND liked it too, cos we seed lots of animals for him to take photos of. I also got to eat some of the chicken from his sandwich Mum got from the cafe!
