Sherborne Castle

Some of you may remember that a couple of weeks ago I went to visit Sherborne with my friend Christine. Here is one of the links of pictures .... Day Trip To Sherborne

Well, as well as visiting the Abbey and the town itself we also went to see the Castle.

There are actually 2 - the oldest of which is a ruin, which we looked at from a distance (!) ... whereas the other, built by Sir Walter Raleigh, is still lived in today.

We were not allowed indoor pictures - but it is a truly stunning building.  One item they do also have is the pipe that Sir Walter was reputedly smoking when he walked up to the scaffold to be be-headed.
