Castle Howard walk

Length: 6.5 miles

Castle Howard is one of the best and most famous stately homes in England. With it’s inspiring history, and wonderful architecture, it has often been used as a film set for dramas and historical documentaries.  However for those of us who  want to walk around the grounds, and only catch glimpses of the great house, it is just as enjoyable.

Continuing Road Closure

The continuing saga of the collapsed culvert and the road closure…

Work is due to commence on 4th June, and according the “Highways Customer Communication Officer”…

“It is anticipated the works will take 5 weeks to complete if all goes according to plan.”

It’s been a long old haul to get the low road fixed, and it seems it may be a while yet before we can trundle happily southwards again.
