Clearing The Christmas Cobwebs Away


After being in for the last few days, we decided to go exploring and clear away the cobwebs!
We noticed a sign for Castle Rising on the way to Sainsbury's the other week, so I gave it a google and decided the boys would probably really like running around there.

The last castle ruins we took them too, they were less than impressed as it was only a wall that was left!

Frosty and cold we all made sure to wrap up warm, gloves, hats and cosy boots were definitely in order!


As soon as we got into the car park the boys got excited, they could see the castle and were desperate to get inside!
The frosty/misty weather really added to the atmosphere!




They all loved being able to get inside and climb the spiral staircases and find hidden rooms with little nook and crannies.


Castle Rising has been around since the 12th Century so its full of history.








The sun was hidden behind the fog and Rupert kept pointing it out asking if it was the moon!



After we had been inside the castle we went and walked where the old wall would have been.
It was very high and I'm sure if the weather had been clear, we would have been able to see for miles!




We all enjoyed getting out but we more than happy to get home to warm up with some hot chocolates and a big cup of coffee for me!
