While traipsing through a field looking for The Druid Stone Circle, we found this wonderful altar:
Then we saw the circle. The stones are smaller than the stones at Castlerigg but nonetheless beautiful:
We had dinner at Old Farmhouse Pub/Restaurant near Ulverston. The atmosphere and food were both delightful:
Then we headed to Millom Castle:
We thought the entrance might be through the Holly Trinity Church. The church was a little gem of ancient architecture in it’s own right:
We quickly discovered that Millom Castle is in private ownership with no access to the public. This was a huge shame as from the photos you can see that it was an exquisite ruin:
The information board appeared uncared for but the Castle was not. The private owners had scaffolding up and were living in the castle. This indicates that the owners want to restore the Castle to it’s former glory. Let’s hope they do and then open the doors to the public.
We had a great day out, dubbed our Cumbria Adventure.
