Castles and Windows...

Hi everyone!

Over the last bank holiday weekend me, my DH and 2 of my lovely brood took an afternoon jaunt out to Tatershall Castle

It is set in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside

I love going to these kind of places, not least because whilst DH reads ALL the display labels AND listens to the audio guide I can fiff faff around with my camera to my hearts content without getting "why are you taking photos of THAT"??!!  (btw DH is a truly lovely, gorgeous man but doesnt really have much creative flair - well, he is an engineer after all....)

so I decided I would take photos of the very interesting windows in the castle.  There was stained glass....old:

and not so old:

The details on it suggests that it might have been made for the milennium celebrations.

Interesting views accross the lawn through ancient glass:

If only the old Playschool TV programme (showing my age here folks!!) had an interestingly shaped window like this (and today we are looking through the arched with an interestingly shaped top window)

Looking through one of the arrow slits:

All in all, a very enjoyable afternoon out was had by all!
